Received! What an excellent item and sharpened beautifully – many thanks.
Beautiful and robust metal bodied tool designed to complete the rounding of items such as chair legs and back-sticks.
Very solid spokeshave that will allow for a high degree of accuracy when shaping and sizing round tenons.
It has fine screw adjustment for the blade depth which can be totally withdrawn into the body when not in use to protect the edge.
Made out of virtually unbreakable spheroidal graphite iron, its strong ergonomic design, sits very comfortably in the hand. Most surfaces are highly polished for maximum comfort in the hand.
The curved blade is 3mm thick and 53mm (2 1/8") wide, the curve is based on a 62mm (2 1/2") dia. circle.
Comes hollow ground and will need a final hone before use. Sharpen the inside of the curve with slipstones then flatten the back with a bench stone.
Length 255mm (10"), weight 620 grams (15oz).
Made in Sheffield, England.
