Plane Makers and Woodworking experts claim that the blade/iron is the most important part of a hand plane in terms of performance. IBC, together with Rob Cosman prove that it really is all about the blade with these exquisitely crafted Blade and Chipbreaker Matched Sets for older planes. This blade set allows an older, fettled bench plane to perform at a level that you would only expect to get from a new premium quality tool.
David Charlesworth Says:
The IBC/Cosman matched blade/breaker is the best prepared that I have seen. The chipbreaker is outstanding and a few strokes on each surface will perfect it. Blade flatness and finish are excellent so the total preparation time is minimal. With proper tuning and sole flattening results should be comparable to premium modern planes. The benefit of this set is the reduced preparation time and the ability to fit a thick blade to a Stanley. This option has not been available before.
I have been tuning up old Stanley planes for over 30 years. We have even salvaged pre 1910 planes. Tremendous satisfaction can be had from reviving and using an old heirloom.

The IBC blade is high vanadium A-2 steel, 0.140” thick, 60-62HRc and cryogenically treated to optimize the cutting edge’s wear resistance properties. Our breakers are unique – high carbon 0-1 steel, 0.125” thick and hardened to 30-32HRc for added stiffness. Bevels are mated to achieve a flatness tolerance of +/-0.001” along the entire width of the cutting edge. Sides are precision ground square to bevels and then hand polished.
