Because the blade can be set level with the sole, you can also trim plugs
or small inlays flush without marring the surrounding wood. Cast from
tough ductile iron, the sole and sides are accurately machined and surface
ground to be flat and square, with recesses cast into the side for grip.
The large angled rear knob seats comfortably in the palm.
Four set screws accurately register the blade in the body, and it has
a large thumb wheel for depth adjustment. Comes with a lapped O1 steel
blade hardened to Rc 58-60. The 20° bevel blade coupled with the 15°
bed angle yields an effective cutting angle of 35°, severing end-grain
fibers cleanly and minimizing tearing. Weighs 1.2 lb.
