Japanese Spokeshave Complete

OK all done now.
Quite pleased all in all, a great learning experience!

Got the mouth about right for the size.

Lovely straight shavings just flow out the mouth.
Just like a little Kanna with handles!

I cut the fit so perfect there is no gap around the blade,
even at the back where you often see some 'play'


  1. That's beautiful. Far smaller and slender than I expected. It's looks like it's a pleasure to use.

  2. Hi David, thanks for your comments.
    Yes I thought the first was over the top size wise. I saw some slender ones and felt they were simpler, more elegent and therefore more in keeping with the blade.
    Making another one as we speak...while the iron is hot and all that!
    Kind regards,
