Designed to seat nicely in the hand, our smallest shoulder plane
is easily controlled using a one-handed grip.
The lever cap wraps around the rear of the body, shrouding the
blade adjustment mechanism so it does not obstruct the grip while
acting as a comfortable rest for the palm.
The through-hole and textured recesses cast into the side of the
body provide grip points for fingers.
The plane weighs 1 lb 2 oz and has a 6-1/4" long, 1/2"
wide sole. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and
ground so that the sole and sides are flat and square.
The planes adjustable toe lets you restrict the mouth for
very fine shavings with minimum tear-out.
The low bed angle of 15° combined with the 25° blade bevel
results in a cutting angle of 40° for exceptional end-grain
Set screws along the side let you accurately position the blade
so it requires no lateral adjustment when replacing the blade after
The lapped blade is 1/8" (0.125") thick, 1/2" wide,
and made of either A2 or O1 tool steel.
