Smoothing planes, as their name implies, are designed for smoothing and final finishing.
Made with a quality grey cast iron body for strength and stability with precision ground base and sides for flatness and squareness. Machined seatings eliminate movement and blade judder. A lever cap with a brass locking screw secures the blade assembly and enables easy release for sharpening. Wooden handles and guidance knobs maximise user comfort. A solid brass blade adjustment nut completes the appeal of these traditional tools.
Presented in a fine hinged wooden storage case.
Blade will require honing before use.

This plane offers very good value for money. The presentation box is a nice touch. The blade adjustment is very easy to use and better than my Stanley. I honed the blade on a diamond stone before use and the plane cut very well indeed. It does feel a little cheap compared to my Stanley however the price of the Faithfull is so low I can tolerate it. Would recommend.
