Product Details

Although traditional in styling, these Japanese planes produce a perfectly smooth finish on all species of softwood and hardwood, even those timbers with complex grain patterns. The solid white oak bodies are impregnated with resin to prevent them from swelling, shrinking, cracking or warping with changing ambient conditions. The blade assembly consists of the 6.5mm thick main blade, a cutting edge insert and a 3mm thick chip breaker. This assembly is supported by the full depth of the plane body making it very stable, allowing the plane to produce a fine, chatter free cut. 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.
