Detailed information

Product detailed description


High-quality Japanese plane type Hira Kanna for common carpentry work. Kanna planes have a very simple design. This plane features a special construction with a replaceable blade. Before the first use, the iron must be fitted into the body of the plane by tapping it with a hammer, which also allows you to adjust the size of the wood shaving. If you want to thin the wood shaving, just hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the shaving and the smoothness of the surface depend on 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, 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 iron, and the other forms the letter 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 in smooth and extended movements. There is no need to exert excessive force; the plane must work smoothly.

How to Adjust the Blade of a 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 upper 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 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 grain 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.
