Detailed information

Product detailed description


A high-quality Japanese plane type Hira Kanna for common carpentry work. Kanna planes have a very simple design. The blade is made from quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and before the first use, it needs to be fitted into the body of the plane with a hammer tap, which also allows you to set the size of the shaving taken from the material. If you want to thin the shaving, just hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the shaving and the fineness of the surface depend on 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, just 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 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 forms an L between the index finger and thumb, holding the part of the plane facing the user. With the movement of your body's weight, pull the Kanna towards you with smooth and extended movements. It's not necessary to exert excessive force; the plane should work 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 tap 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 remember 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 needs to be adjusted before use according to personal preferences.
