A gift as precise as the work.
The CT-12 features an articulated iron cap (patent in process) that looks and works differently than any other iron cap or double iron assembly. This uniquely hinged device “pre-loads” the cutting edge with a force greater than any resistance encountered during use. In addition, the mass spanning the entire bevel of the iron deadens vibration, which provides for much smoother cutting and helps prolong edge life. The articulated iron cap also functions as an ideal chip breaker (which helps minimize grain tear-out) and eliminates the hassle of taking apart a double iron when sharpening is required. No shavings will wedge under this chip breaker. The CT-12, like every Commemorative plane in the series, features the incredibly intricate double-dovetail joinery and uses a modified "Norris" style adjustment mechanism that adjusts both the depth of cut and blade skew. The sole is guaranteed to be flat within 0.002" in all directions. The throat of the plane is completely adjustable and locks to the sole in three places.
