Veritas Toothed Blade for Low Angle Smoothing Plane, Coarse, 13TPI, A2 Steel
The Veritas Coarse Toothed Smoothing Plane Blade at 13TPI allows fast material removal with minimal tear-out, even when working with difficult grain, particularly knots. They are also useful for leaving witness marks to indicate what parts of the work you still need to finish, or for texturing a surface for veneer.
Medium (17 tpi) and fine (25 tpi) blades are also available. The coarse-toothed blade is a good choice for fast material removal, while the fine-toothed blade provides the best performance in densely figured wood or for leaving a finely grooved surface for veneering. The medium-toothed blade is a good general workhorse, offering a compromise between speed and tear-out prevention.
At a width of 2" (50mm), this blade is designed for for the Veritas Bevel Up Low Angle Smoothing Plane,
