These spokeshaves are beauties, and they will quickly become favorites as they are so easy to use. All three have been designed for smooth, effective, chatterfree shaping of chair spindles, panel edges, paddles and tool handles, or other shaping.
The 1/8" thick blade, machined lever cap, and blade bed achieve chatterfree cutting in virtually all conditions. The ductile cast iron body is fitted with bubinga handles, shaped for comfort and control. The toe serves as a thumb rest, allowing the user to choke up on the body to attain exceptional control for fine work. Twin adjustment wheels quickly and accurately control cut depth and skew, and shims let you adjust the mouth opening as needed.
Our flat and round spokeshaves have a 2-1/8" wide blade and are suited to most kinds of woodworking. The round shave has a 1-3/4" radius.
The concave spokeshave, with a 45° bed angle, a sole radius of 15/16", and a 1-1/2" wide blade, is popular with chair and paddle makers; it is the first choice for a wide range of jobs from small spindles to large oars.
Each spokeshave weighs about 12 oz. 10-1/2" long overall. Blades come in A2 or O1 tool steel.
Patented. Made in Canada.
For those who cannot resist the temptation to customize their tools, we offer a kit that allows you to make custom handles for any of the three Veritas spokeshaves. The kit includes brass washers, hanger bolts, a mandrel for lathe mounting and assembly (although handles can also be carved or shaped with other freehand techniques), and detailed instructions.
