Prize Plane

Some years ago, I was gifted a Clark & Williams try plane.  I was hooked immediately by the beauty, simplicity, elegance, workmanship and performance.  I always thought I would add one of their smoothers to my arsenal.  Then C&W changed their name to Old Street Tools.  The planes were the same but having the Clark and Williams names on the plane was important to me.  In a bit of serendipity, Chris Schwarz listed a plane for sale on his blog. Just what I wanted plus the added provenance of Chris!  This makes this plane very special for me and I will treasure it along with my C&W try plane.
