Specialty Ebony Curved Sole Spoke Shave
This ebony Curved Spoke Shave is 280mm long x 24 mm wide x 24 mm high. With a 75mm radius on the sole. Weighs 0.5 Kg and has the option of a 45mm wide x 1.6mm thick x 34mm High Speed Steel (HSS) blade hardened to Rc 62. The HSS is ideal if you plan to reverse the plane to bevel up and use it as a scraper on hard timber.
It has a 55 degrees blade angle for planing and by reversing the blade (bevel up) it will perform as a scraper for use of hard cranky woods.
Fine finishing of inside curves. You can also plane a combination of inside and outside curves with one pass once you have mastered this tool.
