They are made in India and are definitely 'El Cheapo'.
HOWEVER . . . I got a couple from HF at less than $10 each . . . about what
their worth, in my opinion. Good enough & cheap enough for a couple of
'experiments'. I wanted something to easily & quickly 'chop down' extruded
dried glue, and a 'roughing' or 'scrub' plane. Since how well a tool cuts is
more dependent on the SHARPNESS of the blade than anything else, they are a
place to start.
Worst case scenario . . . I toss the bodies and keep the Rosewood handles
and fore-knob to use on Jigs & Fixtures.
