The #649 Block Plane by ECE continues to be one of our most popular items for good reason. It’s comfortable in your hand, easy to use, sharpen, and adjust. It features an ironwood sole and a super-fine adjustment knob that doubles as a palm rest. The adjustment mechanism is German engineering at its best. Simply turn the adjusting knob clockwise for a thicker shaving and counter-clockwise for thinner. This mechanism makes it easy to produce incredibly thin shavings. 39mm (1 1/2″) Iron bedded at 50 degrees. 150mm (6″) body length, Hornbeam body, Ironwood sole.
