Stanley #6C (my # 6C-071617-1) type 11 $
A very nice type 11 Stanley #6. Note there is a red undercoating that I’ve not run into before, so I’ll assume this has been refinished a some point in it’s distant past, although it does look like japanning to me. I decided top leave it because of the red highlights.
The tote is original but I have repaired it in two spots. (the repair is guaranteed)
The blade is a newer vintage. It’s a good blade but had a very steep angle which I chose to not grind out. It will eventually go away with subsequent sharpenings.
Sharpen with a shallow camber ( see photo )
Note the frog screw for a front toe screw on the tote.
