Product Description

When planing chopsticks on the Chopstick Master, one will occasionally find themselves cutting against the grain of the blank. In most cases, reversing the plane to cut the opposite direction will eliminate tearing grain. Sometimes however, nothing works. Here is why;

The mini block plane included with the Chopstick Master is a bevel up plane with an attack angle of 42 degrees. This angle is absolutely perfect for straight grain blanks and for cutting the diamond finial in version two of the Chopstick Master. To avoid tear-out in difficult grain blanks the attack angle needs to be less aggressive. Towards that objective, we are pleased to offer a kit consisting of a spare iron and a set-up gauge that will allow you to have an iron on hand with an attack angle of 50 degrees. This is an ideal angle for most situations where you are experiencing switch back grain.

The set-up gauge allows you to quickly and precisely position the iron for a 50 degree honing session.  Having two irons ready for any situation makes for a much more pleasurable chopstick making session!
