These planes were designed by Irving Sloane specifically for instrument making. The combination of small size and flat base makes them ideal for carving the outside of arch topped instruments, shaping braces and many other lutherie applications. They are made in USA to a very polished standard and are finished off more like a piece of jewellery than a tool. Adjustment is effortless due to the brass thumbscrew and the Chrome Vanadium blade takes a very sharp edge and lasts well between sharpens. - 36mm long - 12mm blade width - Flat base - Made in USA - Made from durable silicon brass - Chrome Vanadium blade is extremely hard and holds a very sharp edge - Easy and accurate thumbscrew blade adjustment
Thumb planes have been used by violin makers for centuries for carving the plates of their instruments. The tools have been adopted more recently by guitar makers and are very useful for many guitar making processes.

The Ibex thumb planes bring this tool into this century and the combination of the modern materials, good design and quality manufacturing. The thumb planes from Ibex will give any luthier years of enjoyable use.
