Natural sharpening stones
Japanese planes with the super sharp blade, we are preferring you use natural sharpening stones to grind your planes of blade.
Use before you need insert the chip breaker.
The chip breaker breaks wood fibers so that they do not crack before they are cut loose from the plane iron. It is important that the chip breaker fits exactly on the plane iron, otherwise wood chips can get stuck in the opening and make planning harder and less accurate.
If there is not enough space in the iron bed of the plane for the chip breaker, the wood can be adjusted in the same way as with the plane iron. The chip breaker is then positioned so that it gets stuck under the metal pin that is inserted through the bed. It is important, of course, that the plane iron that has already been placed does not slip.
The Japanese plane differs from the Western plane in one important respect: it is used with a pulling motion, so pull it towards you when planning. To do this, place your "good" hand in front of the iron bed of the plane, and the other hand on the back to be able to steer the plane. If the surface to be planed is very long, it may be necessary to go along with the instrument.
