Handmade Custom Lignum Vitae high angle smoothing plane, made entirely by me. This plane has a 2 wide single iron of cryogenically treated CPM-M4 high speed tool steel at 62.5 Rc hardness, bedded at 55 degrees. The 14 long body is carved from a single piece of solid Lignum, tote and strike button included.Even the wedge is an off cut from the same piece. Everything has been sanded to 2000 grit and polished, then finished with Renaissance wax. The plane is tuned up and produces lacy thin shavings and leaves a polished surface. My name is Ben Bentley, and Ive been making traditional wooden hand planes for over 10 years, in addition to wooden boats, furniture and knives.
