    My birthday Doi has this and I have noticed this on several other knives; very mild on these knives but apparent after sharpening. I would assume this would be the technique of the craftsman on the...

    There are a couple of books on Amazonsky but I know nothing about them. (Don't you just love that: I don't know, but I will tell you.) Just thought I would throw that out there.

    I think it was Maxim quoting the Shig folks that kitaeji would be more stable. This makes sense and is what I meant by the plywood comment. My intuition would say that this could be more important on...

    Yeah, my current inclination is to stick with metal planes. If you pay enough you will get ones with properly machined bottoms and as you say, the weight is helpful. I had a #8 stanley once that I...
