Detailed information

Product detailed description

umebachi_ryuma_logoA high-quality Japanese plane of smaller dimensions, type Hira Kanna, for common carpentry work. Kanna type planes have a very simple construction. The blade is made of high-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 adjust the size of the shaving of the material being worked. If you want to thin the shaving, just hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the shaving and the smoothness of the surface depend on 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 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 the thumb, holding the part of the plane facing the user. With the movement of your body weight, pull the Kanna towards you in even and extended moves. There is no need to exert extra force; the plane must work smoothly.

How to adjust the blade of a Japanese plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceWhen setting 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's 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 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 work well. The Japanese plane needs to be adjusted before use according to personal preferences.
