Block Planes Low Angle
Block Planes come in many shapes and sizes — all have the blade bevel up. Low Angle Block Planes have the blade bedded at 12°. We grind a 25° flat bevel on our Block Plane blades. This works well on end grain and general purpose work. Higher cutting angles will give excellent results in figured and difficult woods. It is easy to increase the cutting angle by honing a small secondary bevel, 30° to 40°. We can, of course, supply blades with a secondary bevel pre-honed for no extra charge.
