For those woodworkers who like the hand-shaped look, the smaller curves on trim can be a nightmarish proposition — or at the least a time-intensive one. Enter the mini-sized spokeshaves from Garrett Wade.
The set of spokeshaves feature brass wings on each of the three types of blades: straight, convex, and the third is shaped in-between for “all other possibilities.” The blades are made up of N2 grade steel and sport a shiny, steel knurled knob for the adjustment. Just position the tool where you need to shave, place a thumb on either wing, and push. The overall size from tip to tip is 3-1/2″ with a base that is 1-1/8″ x 5/8″ to better fit in tight spots.
As with many things from Garrett Wade, they ain’t cheap. Anyone who must have a set will soon be separated with the better part of $40 before shipping.
