Each is 7/8" wide and 3-1/4" long, and each sole is shaped differently to solve a specific detail, trim or shaping need: Flat, Chamfer, Curved front to back (single convex), Curved side to side (double convex or "spoon"). Each blade is custom shaped, of course, to fit the sole of its plane body. Although made of beautiful Black Ebony, these are real working tools and should be used. They allow the furniture maker or finish carpenter to do trim work that is otherwise very difficult to accomplish.

Like the Japanese, the Chinese traditionally make plane bodies entirely of wood. This rich culture reaches back at least 1,000 years. This special set is made for Garrett Wade by very experienced craftsmen. Available individually or as a boxed set of four in a custom made fitted box. (Box not otherwise available.)

  • Great Little Plane

    Mike S., 7/12/2015 Very useful little plane. I use it for shaping braces on the acoustic guitars I build. Handy, efficient and well constructed. Who could ask for more!
  • For Small Projects (not a toy!)

    Andrew, 1/25/2015 Purchased the straight trim plane for some small box work. The blade came adequately sharp for rough work, but I did hone and polish it for an even better cut. This is not a toy! It really cuts well and the wood body, though small, is sturdy and feels good in the hand, though one needs to get used to the rectangular shape - as one would with a Japanese plane. Adjusting the blade takes some getting used to, especially for anyone more familiar with the standard metal block plane with a screw adjustment (but it's much easier than my old cheapo Stanley metal plane with just a single hold down screw). The tension screw needs to be backed off a little and the blade manipulated to just barely protrude from the body. It takes several tries sometimes, but once set and tightened down, the blade holds and cuts well. I used it to clean the miter cuts from the table saw (45 degrees to the grain) and it worked like a charm. Only down side is getting used to the rectangular shape - there's really no good way to grip the plane and not come in contact with the protruding blade on top.
  • Quality Tools

    Steve Tripp, 12/11/2014 I didn't expect much when I initially got them because of the price, but they surprised me and I use them more often than I thought I would.
  • Not Bad

    Jay Jin, 12/1/2014 Trim Planes Too Small.
  • Quality Workmanship

    Richard Munson, 11/25/2013 These planes are beautifully made and are a joy to hold in your hand. They are perfect for the small job or where working space is limited. They are, indeed, the right tools for the right jobs!
  • Excellent Birthday Gift!

    Lise, 11/25/2013 My woodworker husband admired the set of trim planes in your catalog. They made such a nice gift, because they are beautifully presented and quite lovely themselves. He's been sort of playing with them and enjoying how they feel. And, he already has projects in mind using at least two of them.
