Details

A new blade and larger adjustment slots are designed to make the Pinnacle® No. 151 Spokeshave even more pleasurable to use. The No. 151 comes with a cryogenically treated, 2"-wide A2 steel blade hardened to HRC60-62 by renowned blade maker Ron Hock. Woodcraft worked with Ron to develop a Hock/Pinnacle Blade that has a 30° grind and slightly larger back slots to mitigate the adjusting wheels binding during blade adjustment. Also the slightly larger adjustment slots permit skewing the blade, which some users do to improve cutting performance in certain applications.

This radius sole spokeshave is based on the classic Stanley gullwing design first made in New Britain in 1911. Features include a double screw fine blade adjustment, precisely machined 45° bed angle, and rust-resistant 304 Stainless Steel construction – body, 3 screws , 3 knurled nuts and lever cap – except for the A2 blade and brass lever cap screw. Overall length is 10-3/4", with a weight of slightly more the 17 ounces.

  • Nicely finished 304 Stainless Steel body
  • Pinnacle/Hock A2 Blade hardened to HRC60-62
  • Blade ground to 30°
  • Double screw fine adjustment for blade

    Good modern spokeshave

    Its great quality pretty sharp out of the box & once honed it performs well. Just take your time setting the blade depth after honing it and apply skills and technique. Using most spokeshaves at a slight angle seems to improve the shaving performance. I'm comparing it to a literally unbranded import with a curved base that has a poor quality softer blade that cannot be replaced once it is worn out.

    Good spokeshave for the money.

    Its a good spokeshave for the money. I will hone it and learn the technique for its design. I do prefer the performance my W R bevel up spokeshave more.

    Great... once you tune it up

    I was getting tons of chatter and getting really frustrated... but once I took a file to the edges of the base to make them a bit smoother, it worked like a dream. Don't be afraid, just round over the edges a tiny bit with a file and this works great!

    Great spokeshave!!…………… but...

    Wonderful, well built tool. However, the iron (blade) is relatively sharp and contained in a small plastic bag. During shipping (apparently) the blade had cut through the plastic bag and was rattling around in the box. It has a chip in the edge that will require grinding to remove. Maybe Woodcraft will sell me a grinder.. 🙂

    Not very good... especially for the price.

    Blade was dinged and dull. Not a problem though. I'm pretty skilled at sharpening and made quick work of getting it razor sharp, but it's impossible to get fine shavings without chatter with this spokeshave. I own other spokeshaves without this issue. Not a fan at all.

    Great spokeshave

    Blade was flat, quality machining. Great fit and finish.

    Good Shave for the Price

    I own several premium shaves made by other manufacturers and I bought the Pinnacle to use on a job site. The tool has a comfortable heft and is easy to set up. The only issue I found was that the blade needed a good deal of flattening in order to get it sharp. After that, however, it worked well. It won't replace my premium shaves in the shop, but it is a welcome addition to my working set.
