Every now and then a Plane comes to surface on my alerts. The E.C.E, Primus #711 by E.C.Emmerich Company is one that I have had my eyes on for many years.
First seen on my Woodwork teachers bench at high school. This plane has always been on ‘the list’
See what the connection with Karl Holtey is. Did Karl Holtey – Maker of the most expensive planes ever (imo) see this frog design?
Did he see this before he started making his own planes? I think so.

Sometimes called ‘horned’ planes. These traditional German wooden smoothing planes are amazing and perfect for cabinet making. Traditionally made woodworking tools are wonderful as they hold onto the history of the company. That’s so rare these days. Some companies seem to think they have to reinvent themselves. No. Its wrong. Improvements yes, evolve yes, reinvention no.
And recently (June ’23) Laura Kampf has been to the factory where these gorgeous tools are made. Here’s a link to her video https://youtu.be/hooec53MqLQ I loved seeing how the sole joint was created. Amazing.
