Spokeshaves are used to shape and smooth chair legs, wheel spokes and rods of all sorts. The WoodRiver shave is a robust casting of ductile iron featuring a high carbon RC60-64 blade and an adjustable front shoe to control the depth of cut. The heavy (1.05 lbs) cast iron body actually increases tool control, making it easier to shave with one or two hands. This, combined with the adjustable shoe for depth control will make this one of your favorite hand tools.

Well designed well built quality tool. Bought it to make a canoe paddle and it was a pleasure to use Throat can be adjusted and the blade is very sharp. Has the heft you expect from a fine tool. The experts always say buy the best tool you can afford and this is an excellent tool at a very fair price
It is a nice tool, except for the adjustable foot on the front that determines the depth of cut. This foot is held in place by two screws you must (1) loosen with a screwdriver, (2) grab the foot with your hand and slide it up or down, and (3) tighten the screws to hold the foot in place. For the money the foot should have been continuously adjustable up and down through the use of bolts that move the foot up and down and lock the foot in place. I am disappointed with the current method of holding the foot because I have seen other tools that use this method become worn & distorted and not hold securely.
More expensive than others on Amazon, but well worth it for the quality.
