It is 6 7/8” long x 2 1/8” wide x 1 1/2 ” high.
Weighs 1.75 lbs.

Blade pitch of 55 degrees - optimized for hard, difficult, or figured woods.
Blade is reversible to bevel up, effectively creating a blade pitch of 85 degrees, allowing the plane to be used as a scraper. It’s two tools in one!
The HSS is ideal if you plan to reverse the blade to bevel up and use it as a scraper since it will hold up better under heat. However, it will take longer to sharpen.
The blade is 3 3/16” long x 1 1/2” wide x 1/8” thick.
Knob handle superbly shaped by Ross Burgess.
The plane body is Gidgee, a very dense and stable Australian wood.
