The bevel-up configuration of our low-angle block plane lets you vary the blade angle to suit the task, from low-angle blades for use on end grain to high-angle blades on figured wood. However, steeper cutting angles require more force to push the plane—a challenge for those with small hands or less strength.
We offer inexpensive hardwood grips to adapt our low-angle block plane into a small bevel-up smoothing plane that can work a wide variety of woods, providing the firm hold and greater leverage needed to plane difficult wood. Retrofitted with this tall front knob and a vertical tote (available separately), the plane works similarly to a #3 smoothing plane for small-scale work, working in tight areas and for use by children or those with small hands or less strength.
