The Veritas Left-Hand Iron Edge-Trimming Planes work end grain or give final trimming cuts on jointed boards, for smooth edges exactly 90° to the face. The blade is set at a 30° to give an easier slicing action, and the bed is set at a shallow 12°. The 3.2mm thick, 32mm wide blades in A2 steel works wood up to 25mm wide. 
This plane is cast in durable ductile iron for everyday use, and is available in right- and left-hand models, with each plane weighing in at 623g.

You may need only one model, the choice is often based on which of your hands is dominant, but neither model is exclusively for left-handed or right-handed users. They are in fact complementary. Having both lets you handle any grain direction, which is handy for working boards with only one true reference face, such as lengths of moulding. 

Depth is adjusted with a large thumb wheel and an independent traveller, for fast, accurate setting with no blade skewing. Set screws in the side keep the blade from shifting when it hits a knot. The fence is drilled so you can add blocks or a wooden wedge to cut controlled bevels, as used in boatbuilding.
