European styled hand plane, designed for smoothing varying-grain woods, this fixed-mouth smoother hand plane has its blade bedded at approximately 45°.
The cutting width is 30 mm and the blade is 2.3 mm thick and hardened to RC62-64. Blade adjustment is done using light mallet taps to set angle and projection.
The African Ebony body is 150 mm long — a good size for comfort and working in tight spots.
A beautifully made, hand crafted plane, it is an excellent choice for finishing cuts on hardwood where a smooth, glass-like surface is desired.
