Detailed information

Product detailed description


High-quality Japanese Hira Kanna plane with a top-grade HSS blade for general carpentry work. Kanna planes have a very simple design. The blade is made from high-quality Japanese laminated two-layer steel and needs to be fitted into the plane body with a hammer tap before first use, which also allows you to adjust the size of the shaving being removed. 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 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 to 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 forms an L between the index finger and thumb, which holds the part of the plane facing the user. With the movement of your body weight, pull the Kanna towards you in smooth, extended motions. There is 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 the top part of the iron with a hammer. The blade should protrude approximately 0.05 to 0.2 mm. When removing the blade, lightly tap 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 Watch Out For

japonsky_hoblik_informaceAlthough the Japanese plane is not a demanding tool, for proper function 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.
