Detailed information

Product detailed description


High-quality Japanese Hira Kanna plane for general carpentry work. Kanna planes have a very simple design. This plane has a special construction with a replaceable blade. Before the first use, it is necessary to fit the blade into the body of the plane by tapping it with a hammer, which also allows you to adjust the size of the shaving of the material being planed. 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 result from the 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 push the plane towards the material.

How to Use a 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 with 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 in smooth and long motions. There is no need to exert excessive force; the plane must work smoothly.

How to Set the Blade of a 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 hit the top 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 a Japanese plane is not a demanding tool, for the proper function of the plane, 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 work well. The Japanese plane must be adjusted before use according to personal preferences.
