Hey all!

Thought I’d post this as a blog, since I haven’t really had any real use of the tool yet. I got a new Veritas round bottom spokeshave for Christmas and wanted to share some thoughts about it as it came out of the box and got some initial testing. I’ll post a real review someday after I have some project time with it.

I’ve got a video here:

The Cliff’s Notes:

1. Its beautiful and very well constructed
2. PMv11 Steel is definitely a bit harder to sharpen, but not an impossible task
3. The blade was not ground sharp from the factory, as it should have been.
4. I think it will be a valuable tool in my quest to further reduce the number of tasks that require sanding
5. Yes, the video is out of order as you have already seen the spoke shave show up in my plane till project and video. I prioritize shop time over editing time.

Thanks for looking! Happy do discuss any questions or thoughts with you here.
