    <p>The Scraper Plane KUNZ n.112 is a special plane made in Germany by KUNZ (a leading authority in the design of woodworking tools) on the Stanley n. 112, where essentially a thick blunt scraper is inserted as if it were a blade to a plane with a wide sole.</p> <p></p> <p>Although generally a planed finish is always preferable to a scraped finish performed with a scraper, the Scraper Plane KUNZ n.112 is particularly useful for finishing woods that do not perform well when planed or woods difficult to finish with the classic manual planers, like very flamed maple or poplar.</p> <p>Scraper a wooden surface with the Scraper Plane KUNZ n.112 is considerably easier and more efficient than using the classic manual scraper even if mounted on a support for scraper, as the Scraper Plane KUNZ n.112 is more comfortable to hold and use. Moreover, having a wide, perfectly flat sole, it is able to compress the wooden fibers for a perfect scraping even of large surfaces.</p> <p>The Scraper Plane KUNZ n.112 has a body in solid gray cast iron subjected to an annealing heat treatment to achieve maximum dimensional stability and painted with the characteristic green epoxy resin that makes all KUNZ planes unique and inimitable.</p> <p>The Scraper Plane KUNZ n.112 features, instead of the typical blade of a plane, a special and thick (1.5 mm) scraper made of tool steel alloy tempered to a hardness of 62 HRC (Hardness Rockwell Cone) and sharpened. The scraper blade of the Scraper Plane KUNZ n.112 has, unlike the manual scraper, a 25 ° sharp bevel that guarantees a greater scraping capacity.</p> <p>In the Scraper Plane KUNZ n.112 the blade-scraper is fixed on a tilting system controlled by an iron rod which allows to adjust the inclination and therefore the working angle of the plane from 85 ° to 120 ° (bevel- down).</p> <p>Length of the plane: 210 mm</p> <p>Blade width: 70mm</p> <p>Variable cutting angle between 85 and 120 °</p> <p>Weight: 1500gr</p>

With its ultra-fine and homogeneous material structure and extreme hardness (HRC 61-63), this steel has double the edge-retention capacity of A2 steel.

With bodies made of stress-relieved spheroidal cast iron, these tools are highly resistant to cracking and distortion. Their soles are perfectly plane and trued at right angles to the sides. Their thick blades of high-strength A2 steel are hardened to 60-62 HRC and additionally subjected to a special low-temperature process to achieve a finer grain. Veritas planes are optionally available with PM-V11 blades. (The Custom series models are equipped with PM-V11 blades as standard). Two setscrews on the sides constrain the blade laterally, keeping it in place regardless of the type of stress applied. Unless otherwise stated, the blade is angled at 45°.

Have you thought of opening a professional violin making workshop? … Or more simply do you have a corner of the house where you would like to learn how to build your first violin? To spend little on supplies for luthiers and optimize space, it is essential to avoid buying products for do-it-yourself or gardening, thinking that they can also be used in lutherie. Many inexperienced luthiers make this mistake and then end up throwing everything out and buying the professional items in their online luthier shop.

Lutherie is a world where craftsmanship meets music. The luthier has been for centuries the craftsman who designs and builds, repairs stringed instruments, such as the violin ... and plucked instruments such as guitars or lutes (from which this profession took its name).

A luthier is the environment where the luthier creates his own instruments. There are about 180 lutherie shops of which many are located in shops in the center with the showcase in which you can glimpse the master engaged in his work to carve wood for lutherie, but there are also many luthiers in private studios with many rooms to allow the musicians to play instruments to buy.

The luthier builds and repairs instruments using wood and lutherie equipment that are very similar to those used by his predecessors such as Andrea Amati, Antonio Stradivari, Giuseppe Guarneri del Gesù and many others ...

In the past the luthier was a craftsman who had a good knowledge of wood for lutherie and a passion for music. Very often he lived in areas where there were many musicians and his work was very influenced by the context in which he operated. The modern luthier, on the other hand, must equip himself with the best lutherie equipment to meet the demand of many musicians around the world, so he is more free to design, experiment and propose lutherie instruments that reflect his own personality.

Many tools for lutherie are quite similar to those that can be found in a common hardware store, however the wood for lutherie has particular characteristics for which it is very important to be addressed by a luthier. When we have to insert a new product in the catalog we have it tested by professional luthiers who use different approaches to work in order to identify any defects and problems before going to propose it to customers.

Making tools for violin making in Italy has two main advantages: taking advantage of the ability of extraordinary designers and engineers with whom it is very easy to collaborate and use production plants of important Italian excellence, such as automotive, jewelry, metallurgy and turning.
