We will get better acquainted with the nature of the Kanna, this simply constructed yet highly complex tool, through the sharpening and fitting of iron, chipbreaker and handling of the plane body. Handling is practiced on simple and increasingly complex sample pieces. The goal is to be able to cope with problem situations (knots, fibres opposing each other) and the creation of finer and more perfect surfaces. Working with the Kanna itself, the ease of its functionality, the gentle hissing of the unbelievably sharp iron will be a pleasure. Each participant will need a new, unused Kanna that will be set up in class.
