Post: RE: Are these Plow Plane Blades? value?

Some more ideas on price from Jim Bode's (https://www.jimbodetools.com/pages/search-results-page?q=plow+plane+irons) site.  His prices tend to be on the high side but he usually has very nice items.

How is Ash with hand tools?  I have a small stash in the garage but have never gotten around to trying it.  It seems like it would be similar to Oak.  In other words, not too friendly.
