This small, low-angle block plane is the answer to a trim carpenter's prayers. At only 14 oz it is half the weight of a standard block plane, a significant factor if you want to carry it with you all day.
The 5½" long, tough ductile cast iron body will take job-site accidents in stride. This is not a plane body that will break when dropped. It has good hand feel; the unique side walls let you the plane comfortably and firmly as well as providing excellent stability for shooting.
Classic Hand Tools offer the apron plane with the PM-V11 blade which is a beefier blade than the standard High Carbon Steel blade at 1/8" thick. Like the other Veritas block planes, the apron plane has a combined feed and lateral adjustment mechanism that makes setting easy and accurate. 12° bed angle.
