Master of blacksmiths Kouichi Kobayashi hand forges the best quality SK-5 Steel.

Sk-5 high carbon steel is made with 0.75% to 0.85% and 0.60% to 0.90% manganese. The strength is Rc 65 and makes a mixture of carbon rich manganese. The increased carbon increases abrasion resistance and permits the steel to achieve a perfect balance of excellent and integrity throughout the blade, ensuring years of use. The master maker of plane bodies cuts the body from best quality Japanese White Oak. He then soaks it in oil to increase stability. Body size is 10-3/4˝ x 2-3/8˝ x 1-3/8˝. The blade is set at 47½° for hardwoods.
