Another old favorite I made a couple of years ago. I use it every day as I think it cuts better than commercial planes. Fortunately I do have a small stock of Burbinga but I suspect it will be impossible to obtain any more in this country. Ox bone was used for the decoration as a substitute for Ivory. It can be worked well and glues very firmly to the wood. Again made on Krenov and traditional Japanese plane principles. 45 degree angle blade.
