Quangsheng Stainless Steel Spoke Shave Pair No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Just retired and I build guitars and ukuleles amongst other stuff. I love tools and the better the tool, the better and happier I work. I have had a pair of Record spoke shaves for 40 years and they chatter. The blades are thin, the mouths are big. I have fettled them and they work…quite well. I have noticed these Quangsheng shaves for a few months. I have some of their planes and they are excellent, as are their plane blades and back irons. They have really improved my collection of bench planes ( along with a Rob Cosman blade and 3 laminated Samurai blades). These QS shaves are similar to Pinnacle shaves sold in the U.S., I am in the U.K. The blades on these QS models are half as thick again, the mouths are tiny and they do not chatter.They are excellent tools and make me a happier craftsman.!!

I have been eyeing a few of their planes. Have you picked up any block planes?

I have this one. It has replaced my Record 9 1/2. Heavier, more solid, a better blade (3 in fact) Works well in the hand.

Have your say...
