This is one of the more unique planes made by Blacksmith Syuji Ohgata. The Japanese White Oak dai (body)is riftsawn, and he has added an adjustable Bubinga sliding dovetail key to the underside to eliminate any splitting. The riftsawn White Oak gives more stability to the plane and also gives a unique appearance to the plane’s surface. The blade is made from the finest Blue Paper Steel hardened to HRC65
Now in his mid-eighties, Mr. Ohgata has been retired for over five years. We have purchased all of the remaining stock of his planes, so there is a finite amount of inventory.
