There's no plane without the plane block!

The plane block is the most integral part of the Japanese plane tool. The adjustment of the plane block is critical to the cutting edge of the plane.

No matter how sharp the edge is, the plane block controls the great original cutting edges.

 

Choosing the best plane block for your plane

When we (meaning our member of craftsmen) browse foreign websites, we get the impression that plane blocks are mere products that are sold to people in addition to the edges.

However, there are probably many things you pay attention to in prioritizing your choice of plane blocks. For example, the direction of the wood grain, the quality of the grain and the numbers of year it took for drying, etc. The question is: do you know of a great shop that can meet your expectations?

 

Check out our new website for carefully selected plane block products!

There are many plane block craftsmen here where we live in Japan. We also have the privilege of choosing the best wood material from large numbers of oak to match your needs.

 

Flexible service in sending our products

Whether just a simple block or with edges or with a hole for the plane block, we can send you the oak material you picked from the photos and such in the form you requested. Not only that, final adjustment is also available (which only requires a small amount of chiseling) to be sent to you as a completed product.

 

Send us your plane blocks! We will insert plane edges for you.

If you want a professional plane block craftsman to put your own plane edge into a block, send them to us. You can choose whichever craftsman is at your command. Of course the charges and postage will be estimated beforehand.

 

The price may be a bit higher, but you are paid back with more durable plane blocks

It might be the case that our plane blocks are more expensive than those seen in other online shops. However, the quality of the oak and the superb craftsmanship our craftsmen provide are assured with each of our careful procedures.

The following are some of the examples we would like to introduce to our clients. Please contact us in the event these examples do not match your own case. We will provide an estimate.
