While a western woodworker will typically buy an extra plane blade when purchasing a new plane, a typical Japanese craftsman will by an extra Dai (plane body) to go with the hand-forged blade. To meet the Japanese craftsman’s need, we have found a quality source – Mr. Inomoto, who makes each Dai by hand. He adds an Ebony Kuchi Ire immediately in front of the plane blade opening to expose a narrow band of end-grain. This Dai/Kuchi Ire combination provides the perfect vehicle for the meticulously crafted blade to produce exceedingly fine shavings.
