E. Kennedy is listed as a toolmaker in 1928 in Exhibition St Melbourne.
Kennedy planes were invariably of Blackwood and well made. They are uncommon on the tool collecting scene which suggests that few were made. Blackwood timber (Acacia melanoxylon) is prized for fine furniture and cabinetmaking.
Very rare. Razee planes have the back cut away for better balance and more precise control by lowering the centre of gravity - from the nautical term razee, a sailing ship that has been cut down to reduce the number of decks.
The next Antique & Collectable Hand Tool Market is on Sunday 6th November 2022 9.00 am to 12.30 pm at The National Steam Centre, 1200 Ferntree Gully Rd, Scoresby or see the map here. For more information see the Tool Market page.
