It's solid so I'm sure it will last.
Relatively cheap.
Frog is so terribly machined that getting the blade to sit flat is wry hard. This is commonly mentioned on woodworking forums and requires filing the frog until it sits flat.
sole was so far from flat that hours of sanding on glass still has high and low spots.
Marketed as professional but really it's a poor quality tool and you'd be better off buying something better if you're worried about fine woodworking. If you're a builder or into rough removal of material from wood without precision, this might be OK.
