Detailed information

Product detailed description

senkichi_logoA special Japanese plane for leveling edges or tops of deep grooves. The blade is made of high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and needs to be fitted into the body of the plane with a hammer tap before first use, thereby adjusting the size of the shaving of the material removed. If you want to thin the chip, simply hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the chip and the smoothness of the surface come from personal adjustment of the blade. Ideally, the blade should protrude 0.05 to 0.2 mm from the body of the plane.

Japanese planes, like Japanese saws, are traditionally used by pulling towards oneself. One hand should guide the plane and the other should gently push 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 blade and the other creates an L shape between the index finger and thumb, holding the part of the plane facing the user. With the movement of your body weight, pull the Kanna evenly and with elongated motions towards yourself. There is no need to exert excessive force; the plane should operate smoothly.

How to Adjust the Blade of the Japanese Plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceWhen fitting the blade, lightly tap the top part of the blade with a hammer. The blade should protrude approximately 0.05 to 0.2 mm. When removing the blade, lightly hit the upper corners of the plane 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 function well. The Japanese plane needs to be adjusted before use according to personal preferences.
