Vintage RAPIER 400 Smoothing Plane

The same size as a typical No.4 plane.

Fitted with the original 2 inch RAPIER blade iron and matching cap iron. The leaflet in the box states 'IMPORTANT - THE CUTTER FITTED TO THIS TOOL IS GROUND ONLY AND MUST BE HONED ON AN OILSTONE BEFORE USE.', this blade appears to have its original factory grind.
Robust black composite handles, marked 'RAPIER' at the base of the rear handle.
Some pitting and staining spots.
All parts move freely and tighten securely.
91/2 inch sole length.
In its original card box with trade label.
