Takagi 60mm Carpenters Tool Japanese Wood Block Woodworking Manual Hand Plane, with White Oak Body, for Smoothing & Finishing Wood Surface
This 60mm Japanese plane is perfect for woodworking and will provide the planed surface of the wood a beautiful, smooth, and polished finish.
Takagi's Japanese hand plane is a jewel among gems, handcrafted from Blue Steel No. 1, one of the most appropriate steel for plane blades. Blue steel is an alloy steel consisting of White Steel (low-impurity carbon steel) combined with tungsten and chromium that has good cutting performance, maintains maximum sharpness, and is simple to sharpen. It also outperforms Blue Steel No. 2 in terms of edge retention and hardness. The plane's body is constructed of white oak, a sturdy and rot-resistant wood with a high level of durability, making it an ideal material for woodworking equipment like this Japanese plane.
By polishing the wood with this hand tool, you may create flawless chamfers. It's simple to apply force uniformly, and accurate and efficient straight carpentry work is feasible since it works in a pull stroke rather than a push stroke, comparable to Japanese saws. It is appropriate for both professional carpenters and home DIY woodworkers.
