Detailed information

Product detailed description

senkichi_logoA special Japanese plane for smoothing grooves. This plane is a suitable alternative to Kushigata Kanna type planes for planing 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 also setting the size of the shaving of the material being removed. If you want to thin the shaving, simply hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the shaving and the fineness of the surface are based on 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 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 rear part of the plane with the blade and the other forms an 'L' 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 towards you with even and extended movements. 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 fitting the blade, lightly tap the top of the blade with a hammer. The blade should protrude approximately 0.05 to 0.2 mm. When removing the blade, lightly strike the hammer on the upper corners of the body of the plane. 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 proper plane function, keep in mind that you must plane in the direction of the wood grains and the blade must not protrude too much. Otherwise, the Japanese plane will not function well. The Japanese plane must be adjusted before use according to personal preferences.
