James Mursell Travisher

0/5 0 reviews

Modern design of a traditional tool featuring many improvements.

NOW AVAILABLE IN THREE VERSIONS:

  • BLACK
  • WOOD (Maple)
  • BLACK DELUX

SELECT FROM THE 'VERSION' DROP-DOWN BOX BELOW

The new BLACK versions have bodies made from a solid block of engineering polymer called Delrin. These are used extensively by Windsor chair maker James Mursell and his students.

Typically used after adzing chair and stool bottoms to complete the shaping and to reduce visible tool marks.  At WOODSMITH we use them to shape shavehorse bodies making them far more comfortable.

  • The back of the travisher, all versions, is solid, just where the thumbs need to be placed to push the travisher. This is not only comfortable, but by pushing just behind the blade the tendency of the tool to tip over in the direction of travel is almost eliminated.
  • The solid back of the tool supports the back of the blade reducing chatter when shaving difficult wood.
  • The blade is individually hand forged by master blade-maker Ben Orford from O1 high carbon tool steel and comes sharpened ready for use.
  • Shavings are ejected through the top of the travisher.
  • The blade can be set precisely by loosening and re-tightening the grub screws set into the front of the body.
  • Even when the blade is set for a heavy cut, it is easy to make fine finishing cuts by adjusting the pressure on the blade and skewing the body to the direction of travel.

Finished to a very high standard, one feature we particularly like is being able to drop the blade into the body when not in use, therefore protecting the edge.

Wooden body version is made from English hard maple, 190mm (7 1/2") x 64mm (2 1/2") x 25mm (1"). 

All versions have a blade with a 75mm (3") long edge made from A2 tool steel.  Comes with an allen key to adjust blade height via grub screws

Sharpen the inside of the bevel with slip stones or emery paper bonded to a round dowel.  Remove the burr on the flat side on an ordinary Fine flat stone then finish on leather, as always.
