What radius of curve are the convex and concave spokeshaves?

It would be very helpful in sharpening to have a wooden form of the correct radius for honing.

Asked by Jim Hanna on 1st of August 2019


Convex spokeshave:

40mm radius measured flat.

47mm effective radius.

49mm honing radius.


Concave spokeshave:

38mm radius measured flat.

45mm effective radius.

47mm honing radius.


Radius measured flat - read from the spokeshave mouth.

Effective radius - as the blades are set at an angle the radius carved by the spokeshave will be larger.

Honing radius - the approximate radius needed to hone the blades. Slightly larger to allow the sharpened blade edge to protrude. The blade will be held at a shallower angle whilst honing than it is set in the spokeshave.

This radius may vary slightly between spokeshaves due to manufacturing tolerances. The blades may need a bit of work to match the spokeshave profile perfectly.

Using the spokeshaves to create the wooden forms may be the easiest option.
