After making some prototypes of this interesting and unusual plane, discontinued by Stanley in 1944, it became apparent that a smaller version would be very handy. So Lie-Nielsen developed the Chisel Plane in its half size, 6½" (16.51cm) x 1¾" (4.44cm). This is now the only chisel plane Lie-Nielsen makes.
A Chisel Plane is not meant to function as an ordinary plane because it has no support ahead of the blade. However, as a clean-up tool, with the blade set flush with the sole, this plane excels at removing glue, trimming plugs and dovetails flush or cleaning the very corners of rabbets.
Bronze body and cap, Cherry knob, and Stainless Steel blade adjuster with a hefty 3/16" (4.76mm) blade.
