Sycamore Flyer Handplane

$ 295.00

This fish-shaped handplane includes Free US Shipping. It's made from spalted sycamore offcuts from Meier Brother Furniture in Santa Cruz, California. The stringer is made of Doug fir from the hull of the Western Flyer, considered by many to be the most famous fishing boat in the world. John Steinbeck and Ed "Doc" Ricketts chartered this 77 foot sardine boat into the Sea of Cortez in Baja California, Mexico in 1940. The following year, Steinbeck wrote the acclaimed book, The Log from the Sea of Cortez, about the marine life in the region and their adventure.

This handplane uses Entropy Super Sap Epoxy bio-resin which is made using a tree sap base. It's glassed with Aerialite fiberglass. The hand strap is nylon and adjustable. It is covered with offcuts from O'Neill Wetsuit product development, and the wood is shaped with our unique, ergonomic hand fit. The hardware is solid brass. As with all Ventana handplanes, this one floats so you can easily pass it between friends in the waves.

It comes with a free cinch sack made by Sagebrush Boardbags from coffee bags and remnant fabrics.

You only need a single handplane on your leading arm for a great ride every time! This is a terrific conversation piece in your home and will slice you across the face of any sized surf.
