This small, low angle block plane is ideal for trim carpentry. At 400g(14oz), it is half the weight of a standard block plane which is a big plus if you carry it in your apron pocket all day. The 140 x 44.5mm ductile cast iron body takes knocks in its stride. It has good hand feel; unique side wings allow a comfortable firm grip and provide stability for shooting. A combined feed and lateral adjustment mechanism makes setting easy and accurate. 12° bed angle, it comes with a lapped 25° bevel blade made of PM-V11 alloy steel. The blades are 2.5mm(0.098") thick (nearly 25% thicker than standard 2mm block plane blades) and 32mm wide.
