A smoothing plane is used to smooth the roughness and tears of a wooden surface. Compared to a block plane, a smoothing plane has a bigger body and can be used to smooth large boards and lumbers.
The chipbreaker which is the second blade that comes with the plane, breaks the wood fibers immediately after they are cut and reduce tears.
Hida Tool's exclusive plane made by Tsunesaburo. This plane comes stored in a paulownia wood box. Paulownia absorbs moisture and can protect the plane from rapid temperature changes. This plane’s name, Hida No Yugiri, means evening mist of Hida. *Almost all traditional planes require several adjustment before use because the plane makers leaves the plane in an "almost-ready to go" condition on purpose to allow every craftsman to make their preferred adjustments.
