I.A. Lutz Violin Planes

Lutz brass violin planes are patterned after the traditional German tools used by generations of European luthiers. These polished cast brass tools feature arched soles (side-to-side and front-to-back) and a fine, high-carbon steel blade held firmly in place by heavy thumbscrew cap.

Set of four includes 7mm, 10mm, 13mm, 16mm sizes.

Do the math....sets = savings!

Blades require some shaping and honing for best results.

Sizes listed indicate width of blade and length of plane body.

I.A. Lutz Brass Palm Plane

This compact flat bottom palm plane fits comfortably in the hand making it perfect for precision planing and detail work. Features include solid brass construction and a high-carbon steel blade which can be honed to a long-lasting, razor sharp edge. The very narrow gap between the blade and the front edge of the throat opening makes it possible to plane paper thin shavings even in hard woods.

Blade width 22.5mm, body length 84mm, overall length 118mm

Tool blades require sharpening and honing before use.

New toothed replacement blade makes trimming highly figured and difficult wood much easier by eliminating tear out and chipping. Great for planning ribs, finger boards, necks and much more!
