To me, this is a no-brainer: rather than destroy the historic fabric of a 19th-
century tool, alter the new blades.

Rationale: You can get all the Lee Valley blades you want, but once you alter
that old Stanley, it's authenticity is gone forever. They ain't making no more
of 'em, at least not Type 2's!
