Tsunesaburo Kaku Mentor Chamfer Plane 30mm - Akio Uozumi

Item #159622


Product Information:

During a recent trip to Japan we visited with Akio Uozumi, a third-generation plane blade maker in the Tsunesaburo family of blacksmiths – the best known and most respected plane makers in Japan. The family built a reputation on providing what customers want and need versus following the traditional course. This dedication to the customer has resulted in their planes being embraced by a new generation of woodworkers in both Japan and the United States.

The family name is a combination of the word Tsune, meaning “always,” and Saburo, the name of the original maker, Akio’s grandfather, Mr. Saburo Uozumi.

This chamfer plane is for 45° bevels, and the bevel width can be adjusted 0-16mm. The chipbreaker and slightly angled blade allow it to be used with difficult grain. The blade width is 30mm, and the plane’s dai (body) is made of Japanese White Oak.
