Revive your antique hand plane with this premium Blade & Chipbreaker Set. Working together with renowned blade manufacturer, IBC, we proud to introduce the new line of Pinnacle® IBC/Cosman plane blade/breaker matched sets. The evidence of IBC’s plane blade manufacturing expertise is extensive, but its name is still vastly unknown to wood workers, now instead of being the best kept secret in woodworking industry, the goal of the IBC brand is to become synonymous with ‘the best plane irons in woodworking’. Match these blades against any other manufacturer…you will not regret it. You won’t need to examine the factory edge under a microscope to see these blades are superior, you’ll feel it the first time you use one! All blades 100% Made in Canada.

David Charlesworth says, "The Pinnacle 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 planes from before 1910. Tremendous satisfaction can be had from reviving and using an old heirloom."
