The Clifton No. 5 1/2 is the heavyweight version of the perennially popular sized No. 5 Jack Plane, the "Jack of all Trades" plane for bridging smoothing and jointing tasks in the one tool.
The No. 5 1/2 is of the same exacting quality build expected from one of the few remaining traditional woodworking tool makers in Sheffield England.
Clifton Bench Planes are both a highly attractive and functional tool that aim to give you an accurate and smooth finish. Ideal for the cabinet maker and discerning woodworker, both amateur and professional.
These planes are ready to use from the box and do not need hours of flattening and fettling to make them fit for use (though we appreciate many woodworkers will prefer to hone the cutting iron themselves.)
