Approximately 20 years ago Mujingfang decided to begin producing high quality Chinese Style Planes. Previously, the manufacture of these planes was a cottage industry with little or no quality control. Mujingfang gathered the best plane makers from around the country and brought them to their Hong Kong factory from where they supplied master craftsmen throughout South East Asia. Recently, they decided to offer their handmade planes to Western woodworkers. Furniture makers in and around Hong Kong are using hollowing and rounding planes to create moldings for shaping pieces of furniture. The planes bodies are hand made from well-aged Rosewood and are nicely contoured to fit the hand. They are 6-1/4" long and width varies according to size. The blades are high carbon steel and are well sharpened. They are sold as a set of one hollowing and one rounding plane for each width.
