Qiangsheng Luban Low Angle Block Plane with adjustable mouth

The Qiangsheng Luban Low Angle Block Plane has a low angle bed for the blade to allow clean cuts on end-grain. It also has an adjustable mouth to regulate aggressiveness in cutting depending on the job and the wood being used.

It is based on the Stanley #18 design from the late 19th century with its familiar ‘knuckle joint’ cap. The accurate grounding of sole and wings, together with the applied stress-relieving treatment, makes it extremely accurate when planning – which is what you expect in a high-quality plane.
