LIE-NIELSEN TOOLWORKS began in 1981 as an effort to make top-quality hand tools and to revive discontinued, but useful, designs so the average woodworker could obtain them. They have improved and refined designs, and use better materials like Ductile Iron and Manganese Bronze for castings and cryogenically treated A-2 Tool Steel for the blades. The plane blades are much thicker than those of any other production planes. The quality of machining and finishing results in a tool that looks as great as it works, and will be a pleasure to use for years to come.
