tracked it down since you said it's on the website.

6.6 pounds (!!!!!)

It's a very pretty plane. For the price, it deserved a tropical wood, though. It may be from their point of view going forward that they won't care for putting tropical woods on handles, even on a limited basis, due to potential problems with CITES.

But, gosh, that plane deserves the effort to find an employee not yet sensitized to cocobolo.

First LN I had was a 6 with cocobolo. It was a $25, and they really polished the handles back then. I don't have any reason to regret selling it, but I sort of do, just to look at those fantastic wooden parts.
