Mini Ebony Plane No.1 (18mm)
The KAKURI Mini Ebony Smoothing Plane is 18mm wide by 90mm long and is used for small smoothing jobs like box making, or edge trimming where a small and maneuverable plane is ideal. It cuts on the pull stroke. A high speed steel blade hardened to HRC 64 ensures a sturdy and sharp cutting edge, which is adjustable using a brass thumbscrew. The ebony plane is manufactured in Hong Kong for Kakuri and all quality control is carried out in Japan.
