This state-of-the-art, pure smoothing plane is the plane to use for the final finish, especially woods of difficult grain patterns. Veritas have combined the generous width and weight of a dedicated smoother with the versatile inner workings of a low angle bevel-up plane. The 12° bed angle, coupled with the 38° blade bevel, yields an effective cutting angle of 50°; this is commonly known as a York pitch. This is an ideal starting angle for minimising tear-out when working difficult wood. It is easy to create a higher micro-bevel angle for very difficult grains. It weighs in at just under 2.25kg, with an exceptionally low centre of gravity. Veritas have dubbed this plane a 164-1/2 H. It is an excellent choice for the most demanding reversing grains, where even higher bevel angles (for creating Type II shavings) are required to eliminate tear-out. The coffin-shaped body has a sole length of 255mm and a width of 77mm. It includes a lapped 38° blade, 57mm wide, 4.75mm thick. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 micro inches) or better. Supplied with a 57mm wide lapped blade with a 38° bevel in O1, or the highly acclaimed PM-V11 alloy steel. Other blades are available with 25° and 50° bevel angles also in O1, and PM-V11 alloy steel.
