Our Mujingfang 11˝ Jack Plane can be used either with or without the handles and can be either pushed or pulled. The blade is set at 45° and has a chip-breaker which is attached via a screw to the blade. The cutting portion of the blade is A2 high speed steel tempered to Rockwell 62-63. The blades are sharpened and will cut, but for best performance they should be fully honed prior to use. This plane is made from Rosewood and is used as a jack plane or as a regular smoothing plane. It is 11˝ x 2-3/8˝ with a 1-3/4˝ wide blade.
