# 4 1/2 Blum Infill smooth plane. If you like a smooth plane with some mass and authority behind it, then this is the plane for you. The sole is 1/4″ O-1 tool steel and the sides are 3/16″ brass. Infill wood is mesquite. This wood has one of the lowest volumetric shrinkage numbers of any wood in the world. That’s why we have chosen it as our only infill wood. Oh, and we really like mesquite as a wood for planes!
The working parts of the plane are exactly the same as all the other Blum bench planes. So all accessories and options are the same.
Please see the ‘Blum Plane Features’ pages on the drop down off the main menu bar. There, you can click on the various pages detailing the unique features of these planes. Each plane also comes with its own sharpening jig. This plane is also offered with a cambered frog . This allows you to hone your blade staight across and then it is bowed to the gentle curve ground into the frog bottom. You can then plane taking fine shavings and leaving no plane tracks!
