Luban No. 5 1/2 Bench Plane

This is a wider version of the "jack of all trades" plane and a good compromise if looking to perform smoothing and jointing tasks with one plane.

The Bedrock inspired frog and body are precision machined for a perfect fit which gives the plane a solid feel and smooth cut.

This is a great all-rounder with a 3mm thick blade providing chatter free operation. This is the same width blade featured in the larger No. 6 & 7 planes.

The Luban brand is manufactured by the Qiangsheng Tool Co., alternatively known as Quangsheng, who are well known for producing high quality tools.

Minimal final honing and tuning is required prior to use.
