This plane is a traditional Japanese style plane that cuts on the pull stroke. The blade and chip breaker are held in place by compression and is adjusted with a Japanese hammer or wooden mallet. The blade is made from high carbon steel laminated with soft steel backing. The plane's body is made of Japanese White Oak.

In general, traditional Japanese planes require maintenance to the sole. This plane has been relieved behind the blade and is ready to use. It does not require tuning.

Specifications:

Blade Width: 58mm

Plane Body Length: 255mm

Plane Body Width: 75 mm

In regards to Japanese smoothing planes; please note that the sole of the plane has been prepared ready for use as a smoothing plane and so no adjustments are required for this, however timber planes may need some adjustment purely because of the nature of wood moving (expanding and contracting).

I recommend this product

Kakuri 58mm

Nice clean planing tool. I practised for hours on some scrap Redwood seeing how thin I could get the shavings, 0.5mm was the thinnest I got. May need some stone honing yet.

Plane sailing

So you have to fit and finish this plane yourself but once done it is a joy to use . There is something a little majgical about a wooden plane that the Japanese have never lost. . Customer experience terrific . I got to meet some of the team at the Sturt school event a few weeks ago . Most helpful. Highly recommend this plane and buying from jta.

Very good plane, easy to use, flat sole

Of course tuning on the blade is necessary.
