More tools like the Kakuri Smoothing Plane - 58mm
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.
I was so amazed by the quality for its price would recommend to anyone
Kakuri smoothing plane
Well made tool. Blade and chipbreaker were VERY VERY tight in the body and took a LOT of hammering to release.
Hi John, Thanks for letting us know. It sounds like your plane will need some tuning to get it working to its full potential - it should be possible to carry out fine adjustment of the blade with gentle taps on the blade or back of the plane body.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch. Happy woodworking, The JTA Team
Great value for money
This kakuri hand plane is excellent value for money and does a really good job. I like the simplicity of them. I will probably end up purchasing the entire range over the next few months to add to my collection!
