Block plane is the basic plane used for shaving any small work that may be hard to work with a smoothing plane. The blackmith for the Shunran series is 3rd generation Tsunesaburo who is a plane maker in Miki City, Hyogo prefecture. The blade is stamped with the character "Shunran" which translates to spring orchid.

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

*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.
