I use a scrub plane when there is a deep volume of material to remove. The cottonwood coffee table I made earlier this year is a prime example. What was to become the top surface had a 1/2" deep cup. The scrub plane was a natural for this task. I followed with a #5 & #8, then a Meeks smother for the final surface. I was within .060 of flat when I was done. Good enough for rustic furniture.

Love me my Lie-Nielsen scrub plane; before I got my power jointer back working, I would use it to take a rough edge to semi straight before using my Bedrock #8 to make it beautiful.

I had to research and Google this since I know nothing about Japanese woodworking tools.
I learned about the Spear Plane as well. Very interesting, and yet it leaves me wondering how it works other than like a Western Chisel plane or just plain held chisel since there is a bevel on each side of the point.
Not the Kanna that you were referring to , but it's a twisty path down the tool research path you've led me to....

I've never used a Yariganna (spear plane). It's an odd tool, more like a knife on a long handle then a hand plane or chisel. They're not so commonly in use as far as I know. I've never seen anyone use one.
As for the regular kanna, when it comes to removing material fast they are hard to beat in my opinion. With the kanna being the opposite as the western plane, in that you pull it towards you instead of pushing it away from you like the western planes. Pulling it takes a lot less effort, it's a very efficient movement.
Add to that a wooden dai (body of plane usually made from Japanese oak/Nara) and a thick laminated, hand forged iron. It slices thick and fast

Hey, at least we can still see the video. :roll eyes:

And what a cool video. Or, should I say tool and its use. Really nice. I can see Potosan using one on his next Maloof chair.
