INCREDIBLE AND UNIQUE SET OF 21 JAPANESE OAK PATTERNMAKERS PLANES
I have never seen anything resembling this remarkable set of planes. The smallest measures 9/32" square (smaller than a pencil). The largest is 2 1/16" wide. All of them measure between 10 1/2" and 12" long and all have a radiused bottom. Some irons are stamped with the makers names and others are not. All of the planes appear to still be perfectly straight. These were brought to Canada in the 1950's by a Japanese immigrant patternmaker. I purchased this set and the other Japanese planes on this website directly from his daughter. Truly remarkable.
