The trademark stamped into the iron is the same as before, except that "STANLEY" is in a straight line, in large letters, and the rest of the logo immediately below, in small letters.As Stanley described it in their marketing material: The frog and the Bottom are so perfectly fitted together, that from the Plane Iron to the Bottom, the Plane is as one solid piece of metal.Additionally, the Bed Rocks originally featured the frog adjustment mechanism that was patented by Schade on Sep.
