Tsunesaburo Ko Hina Kanna Japanese Smoothing Plane 42 x 150mm Flat

22.5

A small smoothing plane, little bigger than a block plane, with a 43mm wide laminated blade of blue paper steel backed with soft iron. This plane is fitted with a chipbreaker (a relatively recent innovation in Japanese planes) but it can be used without.

This shorter version is a true smoothing plane - perfect for cleaning up slight low spots within a board. If you want to practice setting up a plane for ultra-thin wispy shavings this plane would be an appropriate choice, although I would suggest starting with something easier like a rebate plane and then working up to smoothers.

Body length 150mm

Body width 55mm

Blade width 42mm

Edge width 36mm
