Just got this in the mail today!! It's a BCTW CT-14 1 1/8" Foxtail Shoulder Plane. I'll let this pic speak for itself.

I carry a Benchmade pocket knife.  It cost over $200, does it cut any better than another knife?  Not necessarily, it is made with high quality steel and has a good feel in the hand and tight manufact

It's no good.  A CNC made that, not a craftsman...

Can't wait to see you put some miles on it!  Maybe a quick video?

Oh no!  You didn't go there LOL

My problem with Bridge City Tools is they're too beautiful to use. A little too modern for my taste, but super cool and well-made. 

Just found out that Brese planes are made about an hour or so from me. Gonna try to get a tour if I can.

Hard to say... There is absolutely zero play in the mechanisms on any of the BCTW planes I have. The blade advance knob is very easy to use, and dial in to the smallest degree. The fit and finish is absolutely perfect on these tools. As for an advantage, I'm not sure. But here is what John E said.


"Quality is contagious.

Nothing is more important to a woodworker than his tools.

If you owned a tool chest full of well-crafted tools,

how could you possibly justify doing shabby work?

You dishonor your tools, you dishonor yourself."
