Made in Germany by fifth-generation toolmaker E.C. Emmerich (ECE). This double iron plane has E.C.E.'s patented wedge adjustment for blade depth. The body is hard Beechwood and the sole is hard durable Hornbeam wood; they are bonded together using ECE's patented glue joint. The plane is much lighter than iron jointer planes—under 7 1/2 lbs.—making it easier to control and use. The No.101-S is 24" (600mm) long—well suited to jointing work on long boards, like tables, and for making perfectly flat surfaces. The blade iron is substantial, measuring 2 3/8" (60mm) wide, bedded at 45 degrees, and made of German vanadium-chomium steel hardened to RC62. ECE planes are ready to use out of the box. A slight additional honing of the blade will improve performance. This tool comes directly from the manufacturer and carries the full manufacturer's lifetime warranty.
