    Those Norris adjusters are too short to be easy to fine tune. I prefer the Bailey system. I like the walnut. I have a Stanley and a Qiangsheng. I guess the Clifton is the Rolls Royce, the Qiangsheng the Daimler and the Stanley the BMW.

    First you say you’ve had it for a year, then you say you’ll review it in a year?

    C’mon… we know the features – we want to know how it feels, how’s the blade, how heavy is it in action, how does it compare, would you buy again if you lost/ broke it? THAT’S the review we want 👍

    Is it Bronze or Brass? as you said there is wear on the Brass bed of the plane 🤔

    You want to lash out and flatten the back of that blade. I will never understand why they do not grind finger grips in the side and why they have such a huge throat opening when the adjustable plate is flush with the front. Other premium planes have much better geometry of the throat area. I don’t know if I want one or not.

    So what’s the verdict after almost a year of use? Did you check it for sole flatness and side squareness? Any noticeable wear on the brass sole? Does the mouth of the plane get really narrow so that you can take those ubermensch 1 thou shavings?

    Beautiful looking plane. I’ve got a couple of Clifton shoulder planes,good quality tools.
