Detailed information

Product detailed description

umebachi_ryuma_logoHigh-quality Japanese plane of smaller dimensions, type Hira Kanna, for common carpentry work. Kanna type planes have a very simple processing. The blade is made of high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and before the first use, it needs to be fitted into the plane body with a hammer tap, which also sets the size of the shavings from the material being planed. If you want to thin the chip, just hit the body of the plane. The thickness of the chip and the smoothness of the surface come from the personal adjustment of the iron. 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 iron 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 extended movements. There is no need to exert excessive force; the plane must work smoothly.

How to Adjust the Blade of a Japanese Plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceWhen fitting the blade, lightly tap the top of the iron with a hammer. The blade should protrude approximately 0.05 to 0.2 mm. When removing the blade, lightly strike 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 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 work well. The Japanese plane needs to be adjusted before use according to personal preferences.
