In keeping with the design principles of our other bench planes, the adjustable mouth is located further back from the toe than other comparable sized planes. The plane's adjustable mouth can be closed to a narrow slit for fine shavings with minimum tear-out or opened for heavier cuts, all done quickly and easily with the front locking knob.
The generous wooden front knob and rear handle provide a comfortable grip and excellent control. The combined blade feed and lateral adjustment knob makes cutter setting easy and accurate. And what a cutter it is! At the heart of the plane is a revolutionary new blade, with a design based on ancient Greek principles.
