new? spokeshave


Recommended Posts

Here's some links to a couple of spokeshaves. The wood-handled one I believe is a new model, or at least that's what a magazine I just read said!!



Anyhow, if you guys use 'em, which do you prefer, low angle (25) or regular angle (45) or both?? I'm also confused by curved bottoms vs. concave/convex blades. But I figure I'll just learn the hard way.

I have both a low angle,curved bottom (from the nineteenth century) and a modern one flat bottom. The low angle is by far the better spokeshave.

The curved bottom allows you to shave curved areas, like at the heal of your neck whereas the flat bottom is more for longer straight areas like the rest of the neck.
