I tried to find something and I ended up on a site that makes $2500+ hand planes.
I saved the link and if I ever buy one it's YOUR FAULT
Sauer and Steiner, I'll bet....
Got one myself.... the problem isn't being tempted by a $2500 plane... the problem is stopping at one.
Konrad Sauer does fabulous woodwork too - take a look at his personal work on the site .
His site is: Sauer and Steiner
