Why do we love these No.1 Smoothing Planes?
There are three main reasons that we really enjoy Luban planes. Firstly, the linishing work straight out of the shop is beyond par, it's absolutely phenomenal and far better than planes that cost twice this amount. Second, if it ain't break don't fix it and Luban's reliance on the tried and tested Stanley design is perfect because they bring to the table another level of quality control.
They're literally the best of both worlds. Third reason is obvious - the value for money. You don't find planes this quality for this price from any other manufacturer worldwide.
