Nothing represents tradition in woodworking like the wooden plane. Many features, such as shape, size, blade and wedge have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. They are light and non-tiring to use.
Used for rough planing of high spots from a surface prior to smooth planing, this scrub plane has a 33mm (about 1 3/8") wide wedged convex cutter to enable fast stock removal.
The 9 1/2" long body is European beech with a hornbeam sole. Blade is chrome vanadium (Rc60-62).
The blade is adjusted by light hammer taps to set angle and projection, a process that permits very fine, quick adjustment.
Made in Germany by E.C. Emmerich, the maker of Primus planes, traditionally the finest wooden planes available.
