Detailed information

Product detailed description


A high-quality Japanese plane of smaller dimensions, the Hira Kanna type for regular carpentry work. Kanna planes have very simple processing. The blade is made from high-quality Japanese carbon 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 adjust the size of the wood shaving being removed. If you want to thin the wood shaving, just hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the wood shaving and the fineness of the surface come from 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 Adjust the Blade of a Japanese Plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceWhen fitting the blade, lightly tap the top part of the blade with a hammer. The blade should protrude by approximately 0.05 to 0.2 mm. When removing the blade, lightly hit the upper 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 proper functioning 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 function well. The Japanese plane needs to be adjusted according to one's own preferences before use.
