Detailed information

Product detailed description


A high-quality Japanese Kushigata Kanna plane designed for smoothing the inside of grooves and channels. A unique feature of this Kanna is that the blade is inserted from the bottom (opposite to other Kannas). Kanna planes have a very simple construction. The blade is made from high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and needs to be fitted into the plane body with a hammer before the first use, which also allows you to adjust the size of the shavings removed. If you wish to make the shaving thinner, simply strike the body of the plane. The thickness of the shaving and the smoothness of the surface depend on 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 while 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 back part of the plane with the iron, and the other forms 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 long strokes. There is no need to exert excessive force; the plane must work smoothly.

How to adjust the blade of the Japanese plane

japonsky_hoblik_informaceWhen fitting the blade, gently 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 be careful of

japonsky_hoblik_informaceAlthough the Japanese plane is not a demanding tool, for proper functioning, 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 personal preferences.
