  • 8" wide wood plane, a little distraction OTish

    I never heard of wood planes so big, or planing competitions, well trust Japan to have both, I don't think they need sharpening lessons!

    Agreed--- they know how to sharpen things! I have a curled up chip I made with an old Stanley #8 when fitting an antique / old growth / knot free pine door in my house. I had cut the door an inch or so to narrow it on hinge side and a test fit showed it still tight so I started in with the plane. The chips were coming off really nice so I made an effort to walk along with it rather than just taking short strokes. Finally peeled one off the full 6 foot+ length and 1-1/2" wide!

        Their probably planing balsa wood. The Japanese also have along history of making things very sharp, like their swords.
