Specialty Pink Ivory Flat Sole Spoke Shave No.4.
This pink ivory flat sole Spoke Shave is a collectors item, stamped as the 4th one ever made.
It is 280mm long x 24 mm wide x 24 mm high. Weighs 0.5 Kg and has a 45mm wide x 1.6mm thick x 34mm long 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. The mouth is protected by a brass sole.
Fine finishing of outside curve work or profiling straight pieces of wood into ovals, rounds etc. such as a spoke.
I know it's a collector's edition, but it begs to be used, and it's a pure joy to whisper through any tough grain no matter how dense.
