Detailed Description

Hock Block Plane Irons

Hock irons have long been prized for their excellent hardness, rigidity and edge retention. They're made from ultra fine-grained high carbon tool steel, which takes a sharper edge than alloys like chrome-vanadium steel or HSS.

Blade Steel

High Carbon irons are O-1 Tool Steel fully hardened and tempered to Rc62 on the Rockwell scale, much harder than ordinary tools but not in the least brittle or delicate.

For the ultimate in durability, Hock's Cryogenically Treated A-2 Tool Steel irons are significantly tougher and more wear resistant than even their own high carbon blades. "Cryo" irons, conditioned at -320°F, will hold an edge longer than you've ever experienced. They're a little harder to sharpen, of course, but the results are simply amazing.

Fitting Your Plane

Block plane irons fit is best determined by the width of the iron and the width of its lateral adjustment slot.

Important: please measure your original carefully to be sure you order an iron that will work in your plane.

These irons are patterned as replacements for most of the Record, Stanley, Bailey block planes (and their clones) made over the past 50+ years.

These irons DO NOT fit modern Stanley Sweetheart Planes, which were introduced in 2009.
