Product Details

Block Planes
Made exclusively for Rutlands® by Luban, a world leader in hand plane manufacturing, these planes are a serious alternative to the premium brands that are produced in North America. The renowned design has a screw mechanism that easily allows the blade to be varied in depth relative to the sole to change the depth of cut.

No 101 Bronze Block Plane
A block plane is small enough to be used in one hand and is designed for cutting end grain and making trimming or fine adjustment cuts. This beautifully made miniature plane is designed for model makers, pattern makers and fine cabinet makers. It is favoured by luthiers for small scale precision work where a larger plane would be difficult to use or gain access. A 22mm wide, 25° bevelled blade is seated at 20° within the plane, giving an effective angle of 45° for general purpose work. The plane has an overall length of 87mm and weighs 200g.

Materials & Manufacturing
The plane body features a single bronze casting which is precision machined to ensure the soles are flat and square to the sides. The plane is fitted with a T10 high carbon steel tool blade which can take a keen edge, and that has been hardened to RC60-64 for maximum edge retention. The blade is held in position by a large bronze cap iron with an integrated palm rest which allows the plane to nestle snugly in the hand. The planes have a lifetime warranty and in the event that they should fail due to a material or manufacturing defect will be replaced free of charge. ©

This plane is small in size but huge in terms of usefulness. I use it in guitar-making and could not be without it. If I had to, I would buy another one in heartbeat. It's a delightful piece of kit!
