When making the plane body, the heartwood closer to the pith is not typically used because of its darker appearance, however it is not inferior in quality or durability. As a sustainable measure, we offer this eco-friendly mini hand plane, which utilizes the heartwood that often goes to waste.

This hand plane is ideal for smoothing smaller boards or chamfering at your preferred angle; and because it can be comfortably used with one hand, it is an excellent choice for precision work. The portable size makes it convenient to carry anywhere.

Guide to Choosing a Japanese Hand Plane

Professional Precision at an Affordable Price

The perfect balance between price and quality, our beautiful, well-crafted Japanese hand planes are an excellent choice for all levels of woodworkers who are looking for a reliable everyday plane. The Japanese white oak body, or dai, is satisfying to hold, while the high-carbon steel blade, or kanna, provides a professional finish on both soft and hard woods.

Kakuri hand planes are more affordable than their Western counterparts while still providing the same amount of precision. They are also easier to adjust by gently tapping the plane body with a small hammer.

Setting Up Your Japanese Hand Plane

Taking the time to set up your hand plane (typically under one hour) will provide you with a satisfying tool for years to come. We suggest reviewing one of the many excellent online resources in English to help you prepare your Japanese hand plane for its first cut.
