LARGE JAPANESE PATTERNMAKERS PLANE - HIRA GANNA
Measures 15 3/4" x 3 1/4" total. Blade measures 2 3/4". Very good overall condition and will make an excellent user. Tapered piece fitted to one side to widen the plane slightly. This particular plane has a wedge and a dovetail insert to adjust the mouth opening. Blade may require honing/sharpening to refine for working. This and many of the other Japanese planes I have listed were brought over to Canada in the 1950s by a Japanese immigrant patternmaker.
