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 chatter-free cutting in virtually all conditions. The ductile cast iron body is fitted with hardwood 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 1 5/16", 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. and is 10 1/2" long overall. Available with an A2, O1 or PM-V11 tool steel blade. Our regular flat, round and concave spokeshaves are available in sets that include our specially designed woven polyester tool roll.
For those who cannot resist the temptation to customize their tools, we also offer a kit that allows you to make custom handles for any of the three Veritas spokeshaves.
