Japanese Smoothing Plane - 48mm, Aogami Blade

$98.00

Description

This plane represents an upgrade of our entry-level high carbon steel Kakuri planes. In this model, Kakuri has used an identical white oak dai (plane block), and has upgraded the plane with a blue paper steel (Aogami) blade, giving superior edge retention and sharpness characteristics.

Blue paper steel is a premium cutting-edge steel that enjoys an unparrelleled reputation in Japanese smithing. More commonly employed in the high-end hand-laminated planes of master smiths, this plane represents excellent value for money as it introduces blue paper steel into a more affordable price category.

Setup and tuning of this plane should be done following the steps as for any other Japanese smoothing plane, which we have collected in a video here.

Specifications:

  • Plane Block Size: 210mm x 63mm x 27mm
  • Cutting edge width: 43mm
  • Blade Material: laminated blue paper steel and soft steel backing
  • Body Material: Japanese white oak

This is a fantastic plane

It arrived quickly, was packaged well and Is brilliant. After a sharpen /hone, and a small series of adjustments it paned so well. A beautiful piece of Japanese design. A pleasure to use with such a great finish to the workpiece.

Japanese Smoothing Plane 48mm Aogami

This was a gift and is part of my new workshop set up because I lost everything in the bushfires. I haven't yet used it as my workshop isn't built. I have played with it and think it's beautiful.

48mm Smoothing Plane Aogami blade

Excellent. A great introduction to the world of Japanese planes. The learning process to prepare / tune the plane and blade and chip-breaker endears these tools to the new "caretaker". Tuning these planes is a great way to understand the nuances of these tools and creates an immediate connection with the user. Taking that first shaving is very rewarding.
