Line of planes and tools was E. Simmons flagship line of planes. Tool manufactures, such as Stanley, Millers Falls, Sargent, etc.Manufacture the planes and other tools. Simmons were masters of marketing objects with their name on them. 113 design and for tooling but I believe the KK mark means it may not have been a Stanley product, though not shure who else since this is almost identical to their 113. This is one of the Rarest plane types manufactured for Keen Kutter. All moving parts operate smoothly.
There are some nicks and scratches from use. The flexible sole, adjustment knob and levers work as they should (see pics). The sole and mouth are in very good condition and the central rivets are all in excellent condition. As far as markings, there is' KEEN KUTTER K113 on the top of the large nickle-plated knob. The cutting iron is in very good full length condition and has the KEEN KUTTER wedge logo.It also is marked KK113 in the front throat of the Frog. The blade is sharp but but as in most used blades, has a couple little nicks and should be touched up before use. There are no owners marks. No cracks, breaks or repairs.
Its a really good piece from a long time collectore of KK tools.
