    Comments about Carver's Spoon Plane :

    Three things make this spoon plane difficult to work with. First, the blade is hollow-ground so it's hard to sharpening on a stone and strop (needs honing right out of the package). Second, the blade is a soft metal that requires substantial polishing to de-burr and it doesn't hold an edge (useless on seasoned hardwood). Third, size of the sweep is huge and not suitable for small items such as spoons or handles.

    Comments about Carver's Spoon Plane :

    I purchased this to use making love spoons, it is not a well made one. Apparently there are some good one going by the reviews. I'm well versed in mechanics and carving of such items but this tool just isn't made well. It has the slot offset to the top to bottom center axis of the spoon. The honing was no problem as I have a very good motorized honer that made the blade extremely sharp. But the back to the slot for the blade to protrude from, the left side of it is about 1/8" from left side of spoon and the right side of slot is double that distance from right side. This makes it impossible to align the blade except to cut on one side only which is the left 1/4" or so. Set blade to cut on right side and left is so deep in wood it cannot be moved. This is balsa wood. Obviously based on reviews here there are some of these that are cast well enough and other like mine are way off or out of alignment. It will be going back except I take exception to have to pay to ship something this bad back for refund.

    Comments about Carver's Spoon Plane :

    Wouldn't shave the hardwoods I was working in. Tended to skip and not smoothly cut. The blade was totally curved at a wrong radius, I had to reshape it and then sharpen. It works for me now, but only in softwoods.

    For shallow hollowing out, or smoothing after using a curved adze, this tool cannot be beat. Just be sure to wear a glove ;)

    Comments about Carver's Spoon Plane :

    I used it on the inside seams of a strip built canoe. Cedar is soft so it was plenti sharp and is the only tool that I could get into the area with. Worked as well as I hoped it would. Allows me better control than a scraper, able to cut nice smooth shaving off, just like a good plane.

    Blade doesn't match profile of bed

    Comments about Carver's Spoon Plane :

    The blade doesn't match the profile of the bed of the plane: it sticks out more toward the edges. I paid to have it sharpened too. I'll have to grind it down myself and resharpen it; not an easy task with a small blade and the curve. It also clogs easily and even has to have the blade loosened to clean it out sometimes. Too bad , because it could be a very useful tool. I have another palm plane that is curved front to back and not side to side that is very useful.
