I don’t think there’s a tool out there that has a wider range of prices than a smoothing plane. You can pick one up for $5 at a flea market, spend a few hundred on a Lie-Nielsen or Veritas, or drop $5,000 on a Karl Holtey.

For those woodworkers who want all the benefits of a custom infill plane (so named because it’s a metal shell filled with wood), but can’t justify the top end, there’s Ron Brese.
