Barrel Rider Green
This is what I use 90% of the time in almost anything with a bit of power. This is pretty much my GO-TO handplane! Dimensions have changed over the years, but, as of now, we are pretty set on 7 1/4"x 12". Deep channels run from just after the nose rocker through the tail. This gives you the kind of hold that a single concave just can't compare to. COMPARE OUR DEEP CHANNELS TO ANY OF OUR COMPETITORS SINGLE CONCAVES IN HOLLOW SURF, AND YOU WILL BE AMAZED HOW MUCH MORE FUN YOU ARE HAVING. Test results in dreders has yielded some very positive results. It takes over for the Hobbit when the surf gets smaller, but still hollow. With that being said, it performs well in the bigger stuff too, without becoming a liability.
Don't buy into the RE-USE hype. It's a marketing scam. Yes they are stripping surfboards and making blanks out of old foam, but they are still impregnating fiberglass to seal them. Doesn't matter if it's biodegradable epoxy, it will still take many more years to break down in a landfill then wood with a oil finish or water-based clear coat. Paulownia wood is extremely fast growing and considered a weed in some parts. It can grow up to 20 feet in one year when young, and can be harvested for saw timber in as little as five years. Meaning it is highly regenerative as a building material. Taking all of that into consideration, we think we have a more Environmentally Friendly product!
All handplanes made of Paulownia Wood, Waterborne environmentally conscious finishes, and Custom, adjustable handstraps. They are made from the best materials I have found in our obsession of handplanes.
