Japanese Plane Irons

Aogami laminated plane irons, also known as blue paper steel, are revered by woodworking enthusiasts for their exceptional cutting performance and edge retention.

Experience the legendary smoothness and edge retention of Aogami in a western metal bodied handplane with Tsunesaburo Aogami laminated plane irons.

These replacement plane irons have been made and carefully heat treated, and shouldn't require any modifications to the plane.

Honing angles are the same as for carbon steel irons (25 / 30) and being laminated they are a pleasure to hone freehand, keep them clear of diamond stones though as the soft iron supporting layer can damage the diamond surface.
