Description

Like Japanese saws, Japanese planes are pulled, not pushed. They can be pushed, but cutting control is better on the pull stroke.

This white oak plane is similar to a traditional Japanese plane; however, a metal chip breaker with a capscrew replaces the traditional wooden wedge. To increase the cut, simply tap the front of the plane with a mallet; to decrease the cut, tap the back of the plane. The high-carbon steel blade will hold a keen edge to achieve tissue-thin shavings, even in difficult woods.

The smooth plane, with its 36mm wide by 4mm thick (1 3/8" × 3/16") blade, works like a block plane. It may require a bit of practice in setting up the blade to achieve the final cut, but once there, performs remarkably well.
