Recently a reader asked about a list of tools to buy for the beginning Japanese woodworker, and the process of cutting dovetails was mentioned. When I was first looking to pick up a Japanese chisel, all I had were reports on the internet from users and their experience with various Japanese chisel makers. Since Japanese planes are made with a blade and a wooden body custom made for the blade, any bed angle can be chosen for any given Japanese plane. Of course, there are other things that might make a Japanese planes more optimized for hardwoods. But it is interesting that all of these tweaks that help a Japanese plane deal with harder to plane woods are, for the most part, identical to what we do with western planes to achieve the same end.
Japanese planes with a 45º bed angle are currently available at Hida Tool and Japan Woodworker.
Deformed back is considered to be a shame among the top Japanese carpenters, but it is quite difficult to keep the back hollow in a nice shape. Japanese traditional style of wood working and construction does not use any sandpaper for finishing the timbre.

With this particular list, the sharpening setup is the most expensive item, even more than the Japanese plane, which would cause many to wonder why should you blow so much money on a sharpening system.
You probably could sharpen Japanese tools with oilstones and a strop or Scary Sharp, but I wouldn’t want to do so over the long haul. And yes, a sharpening system is a woodworking tool, and arguably one of the most important tools in your shop. And although there were a lot of reports that Japanese chisels from many different sources were really great, there would be the occasional report that there were issues with chipping, especially with really inexpensive Japanese chisels.
Its teeth have a Japanese crosscut profile, but the profile is altered a bit to make it behave more like a rip tooth saw. Even better, you’ll have a great base upon which to build your woodworking tool arsenal. I used another Japanese plane that I have, and it has no problem removing the tearout and leaving a glass-like surface on this piece of maple. Going with a plane blade with a more abrasion-resistant steel like blue steel may help, or maybe one of the HSS or other steels that Stu Tierney has in the works may help as well.

Or it may just be a matter of picking a reasonably high quality plane blade from a good maker in the first place.
Grab your plane with a high bed angle, a tight mouth, an A-2 blade, and sharpen the heck out of it, which sounds just like the strategies listed above for tweaking a Japanese plane to deal with similar problems.
These also happened to be the least expensive Japanese chisels that I could find that had good reviews and no negative reports.
Although it is true that you can get an excellent surface on woods like pine or cedar from having a plane with a lower bed angle, Japanese planes can be, and were modified to optimize their performance on hardwoods. The plan B plane has a bed angle of about 45º, and you can see the difference between the two planes in this photo.
Recently, Chris Hall wrote about a Japanese plane he set up with a bed angle of 60º to work on curly bubinga.
