Detailed information

Product detailed description

Special umebachi_ryuma_logoJapanese plane of a smaller size type Sori Kanna with a curved body and a straight blade. Kanna type planes have a very simple design. Although the body is curved, the blade itself is the same as in a classic Japanese plane. This Kanna is used to create a curved surface. The blade is made of high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and before first use, it must be fitted into the body of the plane with a hammer tap, thereby also setting the size of the shavings 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 comes from 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, 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 the 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, thus holding the part of the plane facing the user. With the movement of your body weight, pull the Kanna towards yourself with even and extended movements. There is no need to exert excessive force, the plane must operate smoothly.

How to set the blade of the Japanese plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceWhen fitting the blade, lightly tap the top part 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 the same side as the protruding blade.

What to be careful of

japonsky_hoblik_informaceAlthough the 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 function well. The Japanese plane must be adjusted before use according to one's own preferences.
