Cast bronze with a satin finish, American cherry handles and a T10 high carbon steel blade hardened to RC 63.
Round soled spokeshaves can cut deeper, tighter curves than flat soled ones and are typically used for shaping edges.
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.
Overall length 10½"

After wasting several hours trying to sharpen and refine a new well know mass produced spokeshave from the local D.I.Y, I decided to push the boat out and go for the Quangsheng spokeshave. Arrived within a couple of days, was already sharp out of the box, but after a quick honing of the blade, can honestly say it' an absolute pleasure to use. Great value for money and very well made. (as are the other tools purchased so far these last 2 years from Workshop Heaven) Many Thanks.
