CTW hammers are designed specifically for adjusting the blades and wedges of wooden hand planes and infill hand planes. The polished brass and Lignum Vitae head is weighted toward the brass striking end and is designed so that it won't mar or mushroom the blade like steel hammers. The Lignum end is of a smaller diameter and is used to tap the toe or heel of the plane without leaving dent marks. It should also be the end used for tapping wedges tight since it won't damage the heel of the wedge. Handles are individually shaped from Quartersawn White Ash with the grain oriented to prevent the runout which weakens many other hammer handles. 45.00 plus shipping. New plane idea's

I have pics of the plow plane and I just got the irons for the T&G plane and the side rabbet planes.
Knight Toolworks in conjunction with Harrolson at www.japanesetools.com have had these custom made Japanese irons made for western planes. These are the first and only hand forged/laminated Japanese irons that will fit a regular wedged plane. They are 2" wide and 5.25" long and are a bit over " thick. They will drop into any knight Toolworks plane that uses a 2" iron with just a little mouth and wedge adjustment. They are made from blue steel (holds and edge longer then pretty much any tool steel on the market) and wrought iron. I believe these to be the best irons out there over O-1 and A-2 irons. They will hold an edge longer then A-2 they will get sharper they will leave a deeper/cleaner surface and they make the plane easier to use. They will really help with tearout too. They are hand stamped with Shizu Tani (tranquil valley) Shipping is 5.00 including insurance.

All planes now have finger grips and brass set screws to adjust the fit of the iron. Rock maple Purpleheart Cocobolo at an extra cost is also available. Padouk Please check my page for all my planes www.knight-toolworks.com
I also have razee jointers and jack planes and scrubs. http://www.knight-toolworks.com/wooden.htm I have great looking/feeling coffin smoothers

All planes now have setscrews to center the irons in the body and make adjusting the iron easy.
All planes are sanded/planed and finished with a special oil and wax finish.

Steve:
The marking knives sure look pretty. But I still prefer the long bevel on your "old" left and right marking knifes. The longer bevel edge makes registering the flat side against the plane I need a line parallel to a lot easier than your old double bevel knife. The extra reach sure comes in handy.
As for the pretty planes - I guess once you get the plane ideas down to where you can't possibly make them work any better you just had to make them look "nicer" : ) That maple figure is beautiful.
Not sure about the special hammers though. The little japanese hammer I've got works just fine - though not as attractive to look at.
I'm trying to imagine what your planes will look like in another five years!
best to you and your tribelet.

my problem is they hurt my hands making them. I have never sold enough of them to find a better way to make them. maybe I should find someone to make the bodies and I can just glue in the steel.

I wish I had more new idea's I kind of miss that. What I would like to do is go for a two piece plane. the body and sole and mortise out the middle instead of gluing it up. but I can't afford the tooling right now to do it. but I think it would be an improvement in my planes.

yes that's what I prefer but others don't want to damage their planes.

hopefully something new (G)

Er, no offense, but mortising rather than gluing up is not exactly a new idea. :-)

nope it is not but it would be new for me (G) and I would still use the same design I used now to accommodate the mouthblock.
