The mini planes are now being made in Hong Kong. The mini planes are also the only item that we sell that are not made in Japan. They have been designed in Japan and they used to be made in Japan, but Japan had difficulty sourcing the ebony, which made the production of these planes unviable. The company in Hong Kong has been making traditional Chinese wooden tools for around 35 years. After the mini planes have been manufactured in Hong Kong, they are then firstly sent to Japan to withstand the Japanese Quality Control. They are also being packed in Japan, before they're being exported. I am confident that these mini planes are of premium quality and the steel is VERY good. If you have any concerns regarding their quality, whatsoever, we would be more than happy to refund you 100% of the item plus postage paid. As you might be aware, we only sell premium tools and would not have these mini planes in our assortment if we did not trust the quality.

Mini Ebony Block Plane, No.1 Flat

Great little plane that was sharp out of the box. I'm using it for the chamfered ends on Kumiko pieces.

Beautiful Tool

The perfect gift - although it hasn't been used yet, it's an exquisite little thing to behold. Beautiful craftmanship, truly Japanese in it's cuteness and precise shape.
