The KAKURI Rebate (Rabbet) Plane is used to cut grooves or rebates into wood and is popular for making box lids, sliding door frames, or drawers. The blade spans the complete width of the plane body, which allows for precision work and for the plane to be easily pulled. It is also effective where square corners are required. It has a high speed steel blade hardened to HRC 63, which ensures a sturdy and sharp cutting edge and which is adjustable using a mallet. The wooden body of the plane is made of Japanese White Oak.
The blade can be sharpened on a whetstone, or replacements blades can be bought separately.
Dimensions: 180mm x 18mm
