Hock Tools from California specialises in producing plane and knife blades from high-purity carbon steel. The content of chromium and vanadium additives is below 0.5 %, which allows the blade to be ground to extreme sharpness and makes it easier to restore the edge than with conventional high-alloy tool steels. As well as their initial products - blades for their own legendary Krenov-style wood planes - Ron Hock and his staff have made a name for themselves with replacement blades for upgrading old Stanley planes.
