Perfectly handy for breaking edges with a whisper of a chamfer.  That and sharpening pencils to a chisel point.

Common decency is as rare as common sense. I figure there was only a finite amount of both made and its getting shared out among too many folks.

Ed,  I often fly to visit family, and I am sort of a handy man, so I usually get a list of things that need to be repaired before I travel, so I can bring the appropriate tools.  When I get a request that a door is sticking, or something else that would require a normal plane, I have that same plane, and that is what goes into the travel bag ( checked luggage )  It is the fraction of the weight of a regular plane, and you would be surprised how often I have used it for full sized jobs.  I wouldn't want to use it to flatten a slab, but get that blade plenty sharp, and it works quite well.

I have the Stanley version, which belonged to my dad.  I use it a lot for just that purpose.

An often overlooked and useful little plane; I wouldn't trade mine away....
