Spokeshaves are, in essence, very short soled planes for working curved surfaces. Used for refining convex, biconvex, slightly concave, and concave/convex surfaces after initial shaping with the bandsaw and rasps.
This delightful 10½in (overall length) Quangsheng spokeshave is cast from bronze, with a satin finish, and a T10 cutting iron hardened to RC60-63.
Spokeshaves are lovely tools to use, especially when you are really 'in the zone' as you need to be very aware of the grain to get the best from them. Always work with the grain, on a straight grained piece of timber this means working towards the centre of concave shapes and away from the centre of convex ones; i.e. always going downhill.
Please note that we are unable to ship Quangsheng products to North America due to retail exclusivity restrictions.
