The Veritas pullshave was designed for hollowing or recessing an area; for example, shaping and smoothing chair seats. Our unique design is the result of taking a convex spokeshave and reconfiguring it with a handle and knob to make it both easier to use and better suited to rigorous work - there is no tool like it on the market. It will do the work associated with traditional inshaves and travishers.
The 1/8" (0.125") thick, lapped blade and carefully machined blade bed and cap iron, all combine to produce chatter-free cutting. The blade bed angle is 45° and the sole radius is 3 1/2". The ductile cast iron body is fitted with a large rear handle and a front knob of hardwood; together they provide exceptional control and comfort. The twin adjustment thumb wheels quickly and accurately control the depth of cut.
The pullshave comes with a PM-V11 steel blade; optional replacement blades of A2 and O1 steel are available.
Made in Canada. Patented.
For those who cannot resist the temptation to customize their tools, we offer a kit separately that allows you to make a custom rear handle for a Veritas pullshave.
