Product detailed description

High-quality Japanese plane type Hira Kanna 平 鉋 for general woodworking tasks. Kanna planes have a very simple design. The blade is made from high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and before the first use, it needs to be fitted into the plane body with a hammer tap, which also allows you to adjust the size of the shaving taken off the material. If you want to thin the shaving, simply hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the shaving and the smoothness of the surface are determined by personal adjustment of the blade.

Kanna 鉋 – is the name for a Japanese plane. This type of planes differs from Western ones in several fundamental aspects. The first thing you'll notice is their elegant simplicity: most of these planes have rectangular bodies made of Japanese oak. The blades are wedged into place with a chipbreaker and instead of mechanical devices, the blade is adjusted by tapping with a mallet on the body or blade. The blade is made from high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel. Western carpenters consider Japanese planes to be "reversed," because they are pulled rather than pushed. Experienced users say that this technique achieves much better control over the plane, but it takes a bit of practice to get used to this technique.
