Nothing like the excitement of the first shavings from a new plane. Kanna is 70mm @45deg. Blade is Kuro-Kasumi by Michio Tasai. Test wood is vertical grain Doug Fir. Even without the sub blade I was able to achieve a glass like surface with no tear out. Very pleased.

That is beautiful! Great picture angle showing the cleanness of the edge know you’ve got a smooth face when light reflects off of it!

Thanks guys. Doug Fir is a tough wood to get a tearout free surface from, this plane performed very well.

Wow. I would say that those shavings are paper thin, but I’m pretty sure I’ve never seen paper that thin.
