The WoodRiver Low Angle Block Plane is based on the classic Stanley No 65 low angle "Knuckle Lever Cap" design, considered one of best block plane designs.
The specifications on these V3 WoodRiver planes are made exclusively for Woodcraft and only sold by us in the UK. With the comfortable chrome plated Knuckle Cap, these block planes look like the Blocks Planes of yester year. But upon closer inspection improvements to the base castings have been made to strengthen the historically weak points of the original design, this also improve the blade bedding area. Improved blade adjustment mechanisms allow for crisp, easy adjustment using the rear adjustment knob. The adjustable mouth is very smooth to operate and allows fine tuning of the mouth for the finest work creating whisper thin shavings. The stress relieved ductile iron castings are precision machined, flat and square.
Each plane is fitted with a high carbon tool steel tool blade, which is hardened to Rc60-64 for maximum edge retention and ground to a 25° bevel. We recommend sharpening the blades prior to use, however they're impressively sharp right out of the box.
