Sometimes hand plane bodies were made from iron and bronze. The extra weight of the tool adds stability to the cut to make it a very smooth-cutting plane.
Another antique tool is a transition hand plane. It's part metal and part wood. In 1876, The Stanley Rule and Level Company made a transition plane with an image of the Liberty Bell commemorating the United States Centennial.
