Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

Description

This beautiful kanna is a full-sized smoother featuring a hand forged blue paper steel (aogami #1) blade and gorgeous oil-soaked block (abura-dai). This technique of oil soaking provides additional stability and protection to the dai. It also features a tsutsumi that supports the bevel of the blade once seated. The block is relieved behind the mouth to aid in tuning and maintenance.

Having sampled Tachibana's small blue paper steel smoothing planes, we are beyond excited to set up one of these beautiful specimens.

Block Length: 290mm
Block Width: 89mm
Block Height:35mm
Blade Length: 115mm
Cutting Edge Width: 64mm
Blade Angle: 38 degrees

Tachibana 70mm

What a beast !. I'm blown away with this beauty. The blade was razor sharp out of the box and JTA helped me with the primary tuning which I'm really grateful for that. I ruined a couple of Japs plane due to lack of experience so not something you want to try for the first time or put your tuning skills into test.

Thanks Mitch and JTA team :)
