It is 222mm long x 1. 1/4" wide x 66mm high. Weighs 1.1 Kg and has a 3/16" thick x 1 1/4" wide Tool steel blade hardened to Rc 62-64.

I opened this in front of my dad - he’s been a woodworker all his life and he thought it was the most beautiful tool he’d ever seen.

Thanks for your kind feedback Gary, Gidgee is a great timber and for those experienced in the use of wedged hand planes, we believe they offer fabulous versatility too. We hope you'll be able to let your dad have a turn on one of your projects. Happy Woodworking!
Another flawless tool
I was at the bench recently contemplating a long tenon for a breadboard end I was building when I heard the “thunk” of this delivery in the mailbox. After unwrapping the excellent packaging, stopping for a moment to admire the finish, I set the blade as described in the instructions and went straight to work. Sharp out of the box, beautifully accurate and a joy to use. Can’t ask for more from a hand plane.
