In Detail

A multi-purpose tool, the Veritas medium shoulder plane can be used on end grain (for example, trimming tenon shoulders) or for paring cross grain as is often required on tenon cheeks. It can also used for rebate work, planing with the grain. This plane is proportioned for versatility; it measures 178mm(7") long by 17.5mm(11/16") wide and weighs 906g(2 lb.). If you have ever held a traditional shoulder plane, you will appreciate how this plane comes readily to hand. The unique lever cap with a pivoting knob adjusts to fit your hand and preferred grip. The concave knob rests in the web of your hand, allowing a secure grip without the need of a vice-like pressure. The plane is supplied with a lapped blade in O1 or the highly acclaimed PM-V11 alloy steel. These 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 microinches) or better.

I don't think this tool could have been made or presented in a better way. It looks and feels beautiful and it works perfectly. I bought the 01 steel version because I understand that it will be slightly easier to sharpen. Of course, only time will tell me whether or not my choice was the correct one. For the present I can only report that the 01 steel has rapidly honed to a practically perfect edge.

I bought this with the excuse that I need to trim some difficult tenons on the strings of an oak staircase. I've not regretted it - despite the expense it's a beautifully made tool, feels good in the hands and has just the right mass to attack end and side grain. The knob on the top of the handle does not adjust anything but can be switched to either side so you can hook your thumb round it in awkward places

A Must Have Tool

I have owned one of these shoulder planes from the first week they were available, as I was in North America in 2003 when Veritas launched them. I must say that they are excellent and cannot find fault with them at all. The rather futuristic look to the plane might not suit traditionalists, but this gripe would soon be overcome, as they work beautifully. I doubt a better example of a shoulder plane has been produced, as these are well thought out and well manufactured and not so precious it precludes them being used in the workshop as all tools should.
