Standing on the point of a pin.

Derek Cohen (in Perth, Australia)
I still have 3V and M4 blades for the Veritas BU smoother, from testing PM-V11. I also have 3V and M4 in a chisel, gave away a 10V as it was impossible to sharpen well, and M4 in a Stanley #604. Unless one is testing for endurance, they all work well and I would be quite happy to have just one if that was all that was available. Oh, all right .. I have a vintage Clifton iron in a Stanley #3 (it fits!), and it is wonderful for the 20 strokes it makes before needing resharpening :)

It begs the point that we tend to make a song-and-dance about "the best", but much of the time I bet that most of us will just grab what is sharp, and make it work.

Regards from Perth

Derek
