    hello, I can’t identify the maker of the plane/ blade. this was my grandfather’s tool. unfortunately, it’s in a really bad condition as it was kept in moist conditions. I also found few more planes in grandpa’s workshop and there were planes with 3 Kirschen, 1 Hermann Buyer, 1 Ward & Payne Sheffield blades.
    those tools are really old as my grandfather died in 1980 (born in 1916, Lithuania).

    small correction in my previous text.. as keyboard suggestion function entered wrong words- it should have been “Hermann Böker”, not “Hermann Buyer” 🙂 sorry for that..

    Any maker’s marks on the back end of the plane?

    no, unfortunately I don’t see anything on it. I assume this is handmade plane. what type of planes it is called?.

    It appears to be a tongue plane, used for making tongue-and-groove joints. The groove would have been cut either with a matching groove plane, a plow plane or with the right hand side of this particular plane’s iron, using a fence (presumably missing) that would fit onto the cylindrical rods.

    thanks a lot. but still i can’t find out the maker as the blade is corroded pretty bad.
    i’ve tried various combinations of letters to determine the name.. budac, budao, sudac, sudao, kudac, kudao, rudac, rudao… i know it sounds stupid 🙂
    the only fact i’ve found related to some blades (by leaving central three letters “UDA” in first post image), was link to japanese sword or swordsmith (uda kunimune and others). well, i do not think they might have anything in common with plane blades..
    so, possibly it will remain undiscovered
