Our Special Quality Kanaban
are used with a fine abrasive to precisely flatten and polish the area directly behind the cutting edge on the backs of Japanese plane irons and chisels. They have also proven effective for flattening the backs of Western style chisels and plane irons. Our Kanaban are made by the highly regarded plane maker Tsunesaburo and are milled dead flat on both sides. The Extra Thick
size is 10-1/4" x 2-3/8" x 15/16".
In addition to their normal use, Kanaban can be combined with our 3M Micro Abrasive Films to flatten water stones and plane soles.
