Quangsheng 2 inch Plane Iron

21
2in (50mm) Quangsheng plane blade to fit No.4 and No.5 bench planes.

This is a 3mm thick plane iron made from T10 water hardening carbon tool steel. Water hardening steels are more difficult to heat treat than either oil or air hardening steels but they take a finer edge.

Hardened to RC60-63 these will equal or better the performance of just about any replacement blade on the market.

Because the blade is thicker than the original irons fitted to some planes it may be necessary to file the mouth a little wider and extend or replace the yoke. My usual advice is to replace the cap iron first as this often delivers a significant benefit without the need for any alterations.

Please note that we are unable to ship Quangsheng products to North America due to retail exclusivity restrictions.

A great improvement
Fitted this to my Stanley #4 with a QS cap iron and longer yoke. What an improvement, the results are unbelievable compared to the stock Stanley irons. You will however need to file the mouth of your plane to allow the iron to protrude through. Not a huge job, just take your time, worth the effort.

Quality steel
This T10 steel is far superior than anything out there at this price point and more. It's so good I have changed out my L/N no4 A2 iron, this holds an edge very well, and I recommend it to anyone thinking of upgrading.

These QS irons have a well deserved reputation for excellent value, very fine steel and precision. Backs are really good, take a very fine edge (better than A2) and last well. I also use one as a spare in a LN block - best value high quality irons on the market.

Excellent blade at an unbeatable price.
As good as any blade three times the price. I took this on one of David Charlesworth's sharpening courses and it preformed as well as the more expensive blades. I will now think seriously about buying a Quangsheng plane.

Excellent
I upgraded to one of these irons after reading positive reviews and find that I must concur. Very good product and I will be equipping my other planes with similar.

Excellent upgrade
I have used two of these to upgrade my Stanley Bailey 4 and 5 planes. They are great quality steel, hold an edge as long as my LV/LN planes and sharpens perfectly easily. Value for money is exceptional and I really don't think you can go wrong (nor notice any benefit from more expensive options).
