Configurable as either a shoulder, bullnose or chisel plane the Clifton 3110 is a very versatile piece of kit. However, the thing that makes it truly remarkable, is that in any of its 3 roles it will outperform almost every equivalent single function plane on the market.
As a shoulder plane it fills the hand nicely and the generous width means it can be used for fettling the cheeks of tenons as well as the shoulders
With the shorter nosepiece and either both, one or neither of the ¹⁄₆₄" and ¹⁄₃₂" precision shims installed, the 3110 becomes a high performance bullnose plane
The rear section can also be used on its own as a chisel plane, no good for surfaces, but unbeatable for cleaning into internal corners for a perfect finish.
Built to very exacting standards, the Clifton 3110 is a single, beautifully engineered solution to three distinct requirements.

The bees knees
Owned for about a year, Awesome plane, this lump was clearly made by some genius I can’t fault it . What everyone else said is spot on. This is my go to plane for a lot of tight spots. Buy one, you don’t know what your missing. They shoulda called it the 211 no?
Very well made and Versatile Plane
This is a solid shoulder plane, a good generous size but still fits in the hand nicely. Adjustments work well and the machining is of very good quality. The detachable nose pieces are registered with machined pins and the alignment front to back is spot on. The iron seems to keep its edge well and the versatility of the plane means that it stays out on my workbench most of the time now.
This plane is a joy to use. Been using it for about two years and it's very good in all it's guises. Great allrounder.
It has no shortcomings
This is my first premium plane purchase and I'm very happy with it. The engineering is excellent with the different noses locating perfectly on two pins; in use it is as if it's one piece. The blade sharpens well, important without the heft of a bench plane. There are no compromises here.
