Soviet Russian , Interesting collectible combo plane with adjustable mouth. ca1970-80-s. Made in USSR, by “THE SESTRORETSK TOOL WORKS -Voskov Tool Factory ”
, in complete set. (smoother +scrub)

Size approximately 10”. Weight 1.2 kg . Very good and reliable tool, as well as an excellent example for the collection. Iron blade 2” fine quality.

Handles made of solid plastic, never been used.

THE SESTRORETSK TOOL WORKS Founded in 1721 as a weapons factory by order of Peter the Great this factory was strategically placed along the Sestra River. The factory has produced everything from guns to cast iron gates and railings and even minted coins for a period of time. The most famous of its products is the three-line rifle created by the weapons engineer, Sergey Mosin. This rifle and its subsequent models were used by the Russian army all the way up through World War II. Today the Sestroretsk Tool Works Factory produces precision instruments, drill bits, and specially designed instruments for individual clients.

The starting price seems very high for what it is.

Looks like a gumboot at the back end.
you could almost buy an electric planer for that price.
