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 planemakers 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. The body of our Adjustable Plough Plane is made from select pieces of Rosewood. The fence can be set to cut a groove 0" - 4" from the edge of the work piece. Five high carbon steel blades are included in sizes 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2". It can plough a groove up to 3/8" in depth. The blades are sharpened and will cut. But for best performance, they should be fully honed prior to use. The length of the plane is 7".
