A smoothing plane is used to smooth the roughness and tears of a wooden surface. Compared to a block plane, a smoothing plane has a bigger body and can be used to smooth large boards and lumbers. 

The chipbreaker which is the second blade that comes with the plane, breaks the wood fibers immediately after they are cut and reduce tears.

The blackmith for the Suika series is 3rd generation Tsunesaburo who is a plane maker in Miki City, Hyogo prefecture. The blade is stamped with the character "Suika" which translates to jade flower. Recommended for first-time Japanese plane user. *Almost all traditional planes require several adjustment before use because the plane makers leaves the plane in an "almost-ready to go" condition on purpose to allow every craftsman to make their preferred adjustments.
