A Keen Kutter #9 1/2 Block Plane

I found this Keen Kutter #9 1/2 Block Plane in an Antique shop in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately I forgot to take any before pictures. It looks fairly early, and I’ve never seen one quit like it. It was in pretty rough shape, so I completely restored it.

According to Keen Kutter Planes: The Simmons Hardware Companyclip_image007[6] By Alvin Sellers, The KK9 1/2 was made from 1906 to 1912.
