Japanese Woodworking Tools | Kanna (Planes)
The Japanese woodworking plane, known as kanna in Japan, is one of the most pleasing and rewarding hand tools to use. Like their nokogiri (hand saw) cousins, the kanna cuts on the pull stroke, unlike western woodworking planes that cut when pushed. Most kanna do require a small amount of set-up (known as tuning) before use, not a complicated task.
