I made this plane initially with a more classic krenov shape but I didn’t find it to be the most comfortable for me personally. So I reshaped the body and added the handle and knob which so far I like much better. The plane is made of Black Walnut and Jatoba and the Hock blade is bedded at 50 degrees.I put a strike button on the knob which probably isn’t really needed but I think the Jatoba should be able to take more of a beating than the Walnut. I am overall happy how this plane turned out, it’s not perfect but makes some nice shavings!
