Japanese White Oak Block Plane - 42mm x 180mm

Rutlands    Part No. JP1434
This block plane features a solid white oak body that is resin impregnated to make it completely stable, preventing it from shrinking, swelling, warping or splitting due to ambient conditions. The blade is 6.5mm thick and along with the 3mm thick chip breaker holds the removable cutting edge insert in place. The basic design of the Japanese plane has altered very little throughout the centuries and it is easy to see why.

A simple concept of a sharp iron blade held in a wooden body works very effectively. This assembly is pulled towards the user rather than pushed and because of this, the plane is more accurate and less fatiguing to use. The wooden bodies are less likely to mark or damage the surface of the work that metal bodied planes and when required, are much easier to flatten.

These planes all feature bodies made from Japanese white oak, a hard, straight grained wood favoured for use in woodworking tools. Tapping the blade on top with a hammer or mallet allows you to set the depth of cut. To release the blade from the body, strike the back of the plane body.

    love this simple design, so different from the planes I would normally use but thought I'd give ones of these a go, works great, a simple design but well thought out
