    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.
