Panel Raising Plane, made of quarter sawn European beech with tapered O-1 tool steel blade and scoring knife, is sharp and ready to use out of the box. Cuts a bevel on a 3/4" thick panel with flat tang to fit into the frame grooves that is 1 3/8" wide. Final reveal is 1" when installed into frame. With a sharply skewed blade, it will cut equally well on both end and long grain. For more information, see the post here.
