Ron Hock has been making plane blades since 1981. He can best be described as a small metalworking cottage industry located in the middle of Mendocino's renowned woodworking enclave in Northern California.
Ron Hock's plane irons (or blades as many people like to call them) have been handcrafted to satisfy the demands of the most discriminating professional. Shaping, beveling, and slotting have been done by hand-grinding and precision machining. He is so darn good at it now he has had to outsource some of the production due to unprecedented demand!
Hock high carbon and cyrogenically treated A2 blades are to replace your worn out Stanley, Record, Marples blades. Hock makes replacement blades (and chipbreakers) for bench planes, block planes, scrapers and spokeshaves. He also makes wooden spokeshave blades, marking knives & burnishers.
Classic Hand Tools are the exclusive UK stockist of Ron Hock blades. We keep good stock levels of both A2 and high carbon steel blades at all times.
