Qiangsheng Luban No 1 Smoothing Plane - Bailey Pattern

Rutlands    Part No. DK1345
Based in China, Qiangsheng Luban are experts in their field of hand plane manufacture. Using a combination of traditional and modern manufacturing processes along with tried and trusted designs, they produce planes that offer exceptional quality. Since their arrival in 2005 they have established themselves as the serious alternative to the premium plane brands from North America. Their attention to detail in the finishing process is in our opinion second to none and the weight and balance ratio is of the highest level. Qiangsheng Luban planes are an exceptionally popular choice with discerning woodworkers and cabinetmakers throughout the world.

The smallest of the bench planes, the No 1 is perfect for smaller scale work or for use by smaller hands. Exquisite in its form and constuction, this bench plane is as much an item of beauty as it is a functional tool. The body and lever cap are solid cast bronze, machined to be perfectly flat, square and true. Unlike the other planes in the Qiangsheng range, the No 1 has a Bailey style frog rather than a bedrock type.

This frog seats the blade at a standard 45°. The thick, 25° bevelled blade is made from T10 carbon steel and hardened to around Rc-61 allowing it to take and retain a razor sharp edge. A solid bubinga handle and knob are both comfortable to hold and look stunning. Weighing 750g and measuring 185mm in length, this diminutive plane is set to become a firm favourite with both collectors and users.
