The Forkstaff plane’s pronounced concave shape to the bottom is designed to make shaping rounded spindle-like pieces easier. It is essential for making spokes, railings and spindles of all sorts. The plane is made from seasoned hard and figured maple with a long iron for years of service. Body measures approximately 6" long x 1-1/2" wide and weighs 5.8 oz. The 1"-wide blade is shaped to match the sole and is A2 steel hardened to Rc60-62, ground to a 22-1/2° bevel, and set in the plane at a 45° angle with the bevel down. Each blade is hand fitted to each plane.
