Detailed information

Product detailed description

senkichi_logo

A high-quality Japanese Hira Kanna plane for general carpentry work. Kanna planes have a very simple design. The blade is made from high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and needs to be fitted into the body of the plane with a hammer tap before the first use, which also allows you to adjust the size of the wood shaving removed. 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 depends on personal adjustment of the blade. Ideally, the blade should protrude 0.05 to 0.2 mm from the body of the plane.

Like Japanese saws, Japanese planes are traditionally used by pulling towards oneself. One hand should guide the plane and the other gently pushes the plane towards the material.

How to Use a Japanese Plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceHold the Kanna with both hands - one hand holds the rear part of the plane with the blade and the other creates an L shape 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 yourself in even and stretched movements. There is no need to exert excessive force, the plane must operate smoothly.

How to Adjust 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 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 the 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 grain and the blade must not protrude too much. Otherwise, the Japanese plane will not function well. The Japanese plane must be adjusted before use according to personal preferences.
