Kakuri Smoothing Plane - 30mm

10 Reviews
$45 AUD

This Plane is a modern Japanese style plane which cuts on the pull stroke. The blade and chip breaker are held in place with an adjustable screw. The blade is made from high speed steel, has a Rockwell around 63, and can be sharpened or replaced. The plane's body is made of Japanese White Oak.

It is highly recommended to adjust the plane blade with either a bronze hammer or a wooden mallet. This is because the blade is a solid piece of high speed steel and could be damaged with a regular metal hammer.

Specifications:

Blade Width: 30mm

Plane Body Length: 150mm

Plane Body Width: 60 mm

In regards to Japanese smoothing planes; please note that the sole of the plane has been prepared ready for use as a smoothing plane and so no adjustments are required for this, however timber planes may need some adjustment purely because of the nature of wood moving (expanding and contracting).

Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email orders@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

We stand behind the quality of our tools. If a tool is found to be faulty or damaged in transit, we will verify the issue with you, and offer a refund or exchange when the problem is brought to our attention within 30 days from purchase. If problems arise outside of this period this policy will apply at our discretion. Where a refund or exchange is agreed upon, we will mail you a paid addressed bag to return your items, verify their condition once we receive them, and then process a refund or mail the new item.

If a tool is purchased as a present or the purchaser changes their mind, we will exchange for stock of equal value or store credit when we are contacted within 2 weeks of the purchase. We ask that the customer covers the cost of shipping in these instances. We will take a payment for shipping over the phone, send you a paid addressed envelope, verify the goods' condition once we receive them, and then mail the new item.

If a tool is damaged through improper use, we encourage you to contact us. We may not be able to exchange the tool, but may be able to offer advice on technique or recommend a more appropriate tool. Where possible, we encourage our cutomers to ask us questions about our tools' use before they purchase them. We can be contacted at info@japanesetools.com.au or 02 9527 3870.

Sorry, we can't exchange gift cards.

Kakuri Smoothing Plane - 30mm

Having never used these Kanna planes before I chose the cheaper 30mm to try first, check the quality and see how the shipping to NZ worked out. The delivery was fairly prompt and I just can't believe the excellent quality of the plane. I didn't even need to tune the blade and was able to use it right out the box. I was so happy with it I ordered a 58mm wide Kanna and it arrived even faster.

Hi Michael, Thanks for your review, we're thrilled that the kanna are fulfilling your expectations. The 58mm will probably take a little more time to set up than the 30mm. Not sure if you've seen our full video, it can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUje4MEivcw&t=3s If you have any questions please write to us or we can organise to call you in NZ.
