Good Sahve at a good price
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.
Almost hit the mark
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.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great shaving action, but too much heft.
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.
I love it !
Good solid tool.
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.
Very well built
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.
lock stock and barrel
I've been asked to review this tool before actual use,but I can say it was very easy to sharpen,and on testing it sliced paper thin shavings from a piece of walnut.It will be very useful and the primary tool in shaping the stock of the longrifle I'm building.

I found this Spokeshave too heavy to handle with one hand as the ad states. Only useful with both hands on heavy work.
