Ok guys, here’s a question for ya. I’ve had the little unmarked spokeshave on the top for some years now. The Stanley 151 below is shown for comparison.
My question is, could this little spokeshave have been part of a BOY’S tool kit at one time? Given the small size and the simple construction, it would seem entirely possible.
What do y’all think?

No clue but I don’t see why not. That could also explain why there isn’t a name on it. It could also just be a early import too though. Several years back I got a cheap one off eBay for $7 new and it was a import with no markings. Regardless if it holds a edge use it.

Probably not. It’s pretty much the same as a Kootans, Boeray, Curtis Holt, YaoBao, Thomas, Kuntz and many other names. All probably made by the same manufacture. Just a different paint job and marketed under different names. None of these have a brand name on the spokeshave. I have four different Kunz spokeshaves, and the Kunz has no name on their spokeshaves either. If you need a blade, the Kunz blade should fit the same. If you painted the hands and base the same color as the Kunz, you would not tell the difference.

I guess it was worth the buck it cost me at a yard sale….. 8>)

One buck is a great deal in my opinion. I purchased all mine new. This was probably made in Germany.

Have your say...
