Re: Top-Notch Tools for Less: WoodRiver's New V3 Block Planes

I have a handful of Woodriver planes and several Lie Nielsen planes. I can get similar performance from either name brand. The biggest difference is in the irons. Lie Nielsen blades keep an edge longer, but I think you can get a keener edge on the high carbon blades that Woodriver provides.

For me, I prefer Lie Nielsen because they are "Made in USA" while Woodriver planes are made in China
