Plane Blades

Plane Blades by Hock Tools

The age old vision we all have of a true woodworker is a wizened old man standing in a pile of freshly made plane shavings.  Ron Hock also had that vision and wanted to be part of it... as Ron explains...

'We've been at this since 1981, starting out making knives and doing the craftsfair gigs, which has got to be the toughest marketing work in the world. The staff and students at James Krenov's Fine Woodworking Program at the College of the Redwoods here in Fort Bragg convinced me to re-tool to make plane irons for them. Turns out woodworkers are very appreciative of better-quality tools and one blade led to another and another and it wasn't long before we were making only woodworking tools'
