Detailed information

Product detailed description

senkichi_logoA special Japanese plane for creating grooves and slots at the edge. The distance from the edge can be adjusted thanks to screws. The blade is made of quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel. The thickness of the shaving and the surface smoothness are determined by the personal adjustment of the iron. Ideally, the blade should protrude 0.05 to 0.2 mm from the body of the plane.

Japanese planes, just like Japanese saws, are traditionally used by pulling towards oneself. One hand should guide the plane while the other gently pushes the plane towards the material.

How to Use the Japanese Plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceHold the Kanna with both hands - one hand holds the back part of the plane with the iron and the other forms an L between the index finger and the thumb, holding the part of the plane facing the user. With the movement of your body weight, pull the Kanna towards yourself with even and long strokes. There is no need to exert excessive force; the plane must operate smoothly.

How to Adjust the Blade of the Japanese Plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceWhen setting the blade, lightly tap the top part of the iron with a hammer. The blade should protrude approximately 0.05 to 0.2 mm. When removing the blade, lightly hit the top corners of the plane's body with a hammer. If the right or left side of the blade protrudes too much, lightly tap on the same side as the protruding blade.

What to Watch Out For

japonsky_hoblik_informaceAlthough the Japanese plane is not a demanding tool, for the correct function of the plane, keep in mind that you must plane in the direction of the wood grain and the blade must not protrude too much. Otherwise, the Japanese plane will not work well. The Japanese plane needs to be adjusted according to one's own preferences before use.
