Ibex Archtop Carving Planes

About This Item

High quality planes with a convex bottom, for thicknessing arched instrument tops and backs.

Precision mini planes get into small spaces. Machined from cast silicon bronze, with a chrome vanadium blade that holds an extremely fine edge.

A larger 90mm (3.54") convex model is for carving archtop guitars, cellos and basses. This palm plane features an adjustable mouth to refine the size of the shavings, a great feature when working with figured woods.

Thumbscrew adjustment permits quick blade repositioning or removal for resharpening.

Ibex Finger Planes were designed by pioneering luthier Irving Sloane.

These convex finger planes are a little pricey but the time you save and the accuracy of each pass saves you tons of time. And time is money. There is no better tool for carving and arch-top instrument, period!

Cuts through walnut like butter!

The blade is one of the sharpest ive had, and it cuts through like the wood is paper! Defiantly worth the cash, saves time and stress, and makes carving a blast!

Indispensable tool for creating a carved top by hand. Sharp enough out of the box. Very efficient after a little practice.

Carved my first arch top front and back. European spruce and mahogany. Twas a pleasure. Once sharpened and set, it worked slicker than snot off a rooster bill. I was apprehensive about attacking the spruce because of the cost, but the plane worked so well that i am very proud of the job I was able to do.
