Particularly effective on end grain and plastic laminates.

Blade will require honing before use.

I received one of these for my birthday and I'm delighted. After a short time honing on a Faithful double sided diamond stone, it was sharp enough to shave my arm. It's beautiful to use too. There's a lot of snobbery about planes but this works just fine for me.

I have had one of these planes for about two years now. It is just brilliant and has become one of my favorite tools. Well made with a superb blade which keeps its edge really well. You can pay a fortune for planes. Don't bother - get one of these they are superb and easily match the more expensive stuff.
