This PM-10V plane blade is made to suit our No 60 1/2  Block Plane.

The bevel is ground at 25°, it is sharp now but will respond well to a hone. We suggest installing a micro bevel at 30° or 35° for general use.

Powdered Metallurgy

Powdered Metallurgy Tool Steel is the new era of tool steel. The steel ‘mix’ contains high vanadium carbides. It comes from a process of melting the constituent metals that make up the steel and then mixing them together. Next, they are atomised to make a powder consisting of minutely small particles.
The particles are screened to ensure uniformity and then under pressure they are heated to form the tool steel billet.
This method produces a tool steel that is extremely uniform with a very fine grained structure.
What does this mean to the woodworker?
Put simply, this tool steel has higher impact resistance than O1 & A2 tool steel. More importantly it has amazing resistance to abrasion, that is, great wear resistance so your blades stay sharper much longer. Users say over double the time of O1 & A2 steel.
The blades sharpen easily to a very keen edge. Our blades are machined, carefully heat treated to the manufacturing mill’s specifications by our metallurgist (Andrew), surface ground flat and primary bevels prepared for fine honing in Adelaide.Depending on the size, our after market blades are 10% to 30% thicker than the originals giving you a more rigid blade resisting chatter and more weight (heft) in the right spot lowering the centre of gravity.

Great, Beefy Block Plane Iron

After a good sharpening session using Shapton GlassStones, I put the iron through its paces on kingwood, curly maple, beech, and poplar. It produced beautiful shavings. The steel reminds me of Veritas' PM-V11, though because of the thickness of the blade and its considerable weight I think it works even better.
