Luban Rebating Block Plane, Bronze Lever Cap
The Luban Rebating Block Plane has the advantage of being able to reach into an internal corner. Think of it as a broad, comfortable shoulder Plane rather than a block plane with added versatility and you won't go far wrong.
It pays to always treat any open sided planes a little more gently than standard ones, particularly when it comes to tightening down the iron. The continuous U section of a Rebating Block Plane provides a good deal of its stiffness, making it more important than usual to apply the minimum force necessary to hold the blade in position.
