Takakatsu Special Japanese Planes

Takakatsu Special Japanese Planes

These planes come from the small smithy Takakatsu, which is specialised in supplying schools and woodworking classes. With these planes you can expect a decent quality at a very low price. Blade made of two layers of carbon steel which is easy to sharpen. Great planes for beginners and professionals who do not want to spend money for a high end plane!

Japanese planes are not ready for use. They require some tuning before you can start planing. Detailed instructions how to tune up a Japanese plane you find in Toshio Odate’s book: Japanese Woodworking Tools. Click on the images to see a magnified view!
