The Veritas small scraper plane removes the requirement to sand a piece of work before applying a finish, to the point it assists in bringing out the wood grain figuration opposed to muting it as with sandpaper. This is acheived because the scaper plane cuts the wood fibres rather than tears them.
The scraper blade spans the full width of the plane.
The plane has an adjustable palm rest (which pivots to either side) allows the plane to be used right up to a vertical face.
Depth of cut is regulated by applying camber to the blade.
By slightly bowing or arching the blade, you also eliminate ridges in the work surface caused by blade corners.
