Product Information:

Threaded rods hold blade in body of plane - rods are threaded into blade and can be removed to sharpen the blade.

Spokeshaves are used to shape and smooth chair legs, wheel spokes and rods of all sorts. The WoodRiver shave is a robust casting of ductile iron featuring a high carbon RC60-64 blade and an adjustable front shoe to control the depth of cut. The heavy (1.05 lbs) cast iron body actually increases tool control, making it easier to shave with one or two hands. This, combined with the adjustable shoe for depth control will make this one of your favorite hand tools.

  • Produces fine, smooth surfaces
  • Adjustable shoe
  • 1.05 pound cast iron body

    Comments about WoodRiver Adjustable Spokeshave :

    I purchased this a few months back. This is my first Spoke shave, so I decided to use it recently. When I opened the box I was impressed with the quality. Felt good in your hands, nice weight. It took me approximately 20 minutes to hone the blade razor sharp. I like that you can remove the studs for sharpening. When I reassembled it I used Loctite on the threads just for piece of mind. I have used it several times since then and it performs flawlessly.

    Comments about WoodRiver Adjustable Spokeshave :

    I originally posted that I was very pleased with the exception of the blade being soft and chipping. I have been to long in amending this but shortly after my post I was contacted by Woodcraft. It turns out that the blade I got was a lemon or something because the replacement is far superior to the original. Woodcraft went out of their way to make this right and I was reminded why I love shopping there. (I WAS NOT BOUGHT OFF!!!) I love the heft of this guy. Others have said its too heavy to use one handed. I don't do much one handed work with a shave, but found that holding it in the middle and using it like a block plane it does fine though when set aggressively on hard wild grain its difficult as any shave is when using one handed. Keep it super sharp and dial it in right and it give nice clean cuts on end grain. I would recommend this shave to anyone.

    Comments about WoodRiver Adjustable Spokeshave :

    I really like the heft of this tool and the adjustments are simple. Its comfortable. The downside is the iron in this thing is way to soft to be effective on anything other than the softest woods. Took a sharpening right out of the box to get it ready ( as expected with any tool) and I was very pleased for about 5 minutes after getting it dialed in until I saw the edge was rolled over and chipped after a relatively light workout. The old wooden ones I have laugh at the work that brought this on to it's knees. Too bad too cause everything else on this thing is good.

    Comments about WoodRiver Adjustable Spokeshave :

    Unique, low-angle blade cuts great. Too heavy/bulky for one-handed use, and takes some practice for a "light touch" application. Very little tuning was required. The blade was relatively easy to hone, however, mine came with a blade having a very slight high point in the mid-section, so honing took a while.

    Comments about WoodRiver Adjustable Spokeshave :

    I enjoy using this spokeshave. It came almost ready to go with nice machining. The blade was easy to hone and able to take a keen edge. It works very well with the low angle cut. I use one or two pieces of paper to set the depth stop depending on what I'm looking for. Very easy to set up. If it has a down it is how long it takes to tear it down for a honing.

    Comments about WoodRiver Adjustable Spokeshave :

    This spokeshave is much better built than another I bought recently (Kunz) and works very well. However, the blade size, 3/4 inch long x 2 inch wide, precludes using it in a honing guide without a special built fixture,and is awkward to hold for free hand honing, otherwise it would rate 5 stars.
