Large Flat Sole Spoke Shave
It has a 55 degrees blade pitch for planing, and by reversing the blade to bevel up it will perform as a scraper for use of hard cranky woods. The mouth is protected by a brass sole.
Cuts shavings very nicely, but it’s a bit fiddly to adjust as it’s such a beautiful work of art, I don’t want to mar it by tapping with a hammer, or against the bench.
Just Mad quality! I was crazy enough to carve Red Morrell Burl and it punished me with it being hard and every fiber was interlocking. This spokeshave just laughed in its face and went to work town with it. To be able to shave & scrape wood with a janka hardness of 3840lbf without catching or chattering is a testiment to how well made this spoke shave is. Very very good, also love that it does 2 functions; shaves & scrapes.
Works like a charm and beautifully made.
I bought tools as a "Thank you" to a friend and appreciated the fine craftmanship of the tools I purchased. They will be well loved.
Brilliant. Excellent. Easy. As per the rest of my HNT Gordon planes, the quality and functionality is world class. Beautiful to look at, lovely to hold and brilliant to use, the large spokeshave is a perfect size to get the job done and inspire perfection. Thanks again Terry.
