The Kunz spokeshaves are okay. Not great, and you might need to touch them up to get them to work well, but Kunz makes an adjustable mouth spokeshave that I like. I can open it wide for hogging off material, or close it down when I’m working tricky grain. As far as I know, they’re the only one making the adjustable mouth model, and I use it a lot on elm.

I’ve also got a LN Boggs spokeshave which is the one I reach for first most of the time. It’s nice, and the only time I have to fiddle with the adjustment is when I put the blade back after sharpening it. Otherwise I just have it set to take a thin shaving and leave it that way.
