Default Limited Edition Cliftons

I was able to get two of the last limited edition Cliftons available in the UK
These were made to celebrate cliftons anniversary making planes. The knob and handle wood is English Walnut..The tree went down in a storm in the forest of Dean.
25 of each size plane were made.

very well wrapped

I like the British green colour with the polished edges.
These are very solid weighty planes







Cliftons hand forged blades made from Sheffield O1

I think you mean: "The proof of the pudding is in the eating".

Well..I haven't taken a bite out of the planes ( fake teeth and all that ) but they are nicely weighted and FLAT.. they are well made, good hand forged blades and the two piece cap iron is a nice feature..makes nice curlies too

Really nice planes, Okami-sensei. Nice story to go with it all, too. Bet those 25 went in a hurry! How did you manage to get on the list for both of them?!

Wow! Great haul, Okami. Cool how they were wrapped in the traditional brown paper. They look like great planes, and I agree- that British racing green is beautiful! Nice shavings, too. The Cliftons would have been happy that they ended up in the hands of someone so skilled, who could use them to their advantage.

I appreciate the correction John.

I don't like using sayings that don't make much sense (the way I've always heard that pudding thing sure doesn't) but I was too lazy to Google it and didn't want to say something as obvious as, the proof of the plane is in the shavings.

Okamisan, you'd make an excellent detective.

Yep, we've been in Hawaii for the last week, but no surfing (yet).

This is certainly the way I heard it, Michael. I understood "proof" to mean a distilled liquor like rum. So I thought the phrase meant that the pudding had rum or brandy or something in it.

I'm at sea right now (literally - I'm on a research cruise), and the internet is slow enough that I can't check Wikipedia or anything. Maybe someone could check my interpretation for me?
