Hello Wiley,

The two Peugeot Freres single iron blades I have are new, old stock and measure 30 mm wide, so they wouldn't work for this little Matthews smoother. I have another, unused, no name tapered blade of the correct width (1-1/2") but it is only 3-1/2" long. Compared to the Marshall plane, this plane should have a ~4-1/2 to 5" long tapered blade to be correct. If you have something that might work in those dimensions, please let me know! I have plenty of boxwood for a new wedge, so I'm covered there.

Thanks,

John
