The Veritas bullnose plane is two planes in one, serving as a bullnose or a chisel plane as needed.
For use as a chisel plane, just loosen the brass toe-locking knob and remove the upper body frame to work right up to a blind corner. An adjustable set screw in the toe acts as a stop to accurately set the mouth opening. When you switch configurations, it repositions the toe to the exact opening previously set, so you will never accidentally jam the nose against the blade.
The plane is 4-3/4" long by 1" wide and weighs just over 1-1/4 lb. Shaped to fit comfortably in the hand, the low, broad lever cap meets your palm, and your forefinger rests in the toe pocket for extra control.
The plane is available with a lapped blade in either an A2 or O1 tool steel.
For those who own no shoulder planes, this is probably the best first purchase.
