Clifton Planes

Clifton Planes

Made in Sheffield using traditional methods and materials, Clifton planes are beautifully engineered tools.

With a lineage that stretches back through Clico, Record, C & J Hampton, Woden and back to Edward Preston & Sons of Birmingham, Clifton is truly the final distillation of British handplane making expertise.

Every Clifton plane casting is fully annealed, an expensive process that introduces greater stability than weathering and introduces strength to the grey iron without any loss of stiffness - critical in an object that you want to remain as true as possible. After careful machining the bodies are precision ground and checked to 1.5 thou in order to ensure that they will be well within the British Standard of 3 thou by the time they get to the customer - wherever in the world they may be.
