Pretty much looks just like it.

That thing looks pretty intimidating. Well done, Harry. By the way, I love that gunstock war club you made. Don't see the likes of that very often. Wink ......McM

This is not a weapon, but a tool to make a weapon. You know where this is going. Big Grin

This is a reproduction of a hand plane from the H.M.S. Mary Rose that was used to make arrow shafts for the longbows. It's basically a doweling plane.

The body is Boxwood, like the original, 6 inches long and 1 inch wide.

The iron was forged from tool steel and is 1/2-inch wide. The original iron was set at 48 degrees, but mine is set at 49 degrees.

The dowel and wedge are made from White Oak.
