CPM MagnaCut: powder metal blade steel with ideal characteristics
Ultra-fine grain structure including extra hard Vanadium and Niobium carbides for incredible wear resistance: hones to an exceedingly sharp edge, you'll sharpen less often and your blade will last longer
Double tempered and cryogenically treated to Rockwell C 62 hardness
Unparalleled corrosion resistance
Typically a drop-in replacement but you may need to file the lateral adjuster slightly (if you have one) to fit the slot
Works with Stanley Block Plane blades with the same slot and adjuster pattern (does not work with new Sweetheart Block Planes, click here for those)
Sharpening Note: As CPM MagnaCut uses Vanadium and Niobium carbides to improve wear resistance, standard aluminum oxide abrasives aren't as effective as harder abrasives. Diamond and Ceramic stones work great. We've tested and recommend both Shapton Pro* and Shapton Glass Stones*.
