Detailed information

Product detailed description

Special umebachi_ryuma_logoJapanese compass plane of smaller size type Sori-Dai Kanna with both transversely and longitudinally convex body and blade. This Kanna is used to create a curved surface. The blade is made of high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and needs to be fitted into the body of the plane with a hammer tap before first use, by which you also adjust the size of the shaving removed from the material. If you want to thin the chip, simply hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the chip 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 lead 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 rear 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 with even and prolonged movements. There's 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 with a hammer on the top part of the blade. The blade should protrude approximately 0.05 to 0.2 mm. When removing the blade, lightly hit with a hammer on the upper corners of the plane body. If the right or left side of the blade protrudes too much, lightly tap on the same side as the protruding blade.

What to be careful of

japonsky_hoblik_informaceAlthough the Japanese plane is not a demanding tool, for 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 needs to be adjusted according to personal preferences before use.
