Customer Reviews

Decent tool, needed a bit of set up and tweaking This does the job and doesn't cost much. It only needed to have the (cast Iron?) sole smoothed and the blade back flattened, then bevel sharpened & stropped a bit, then it worked well after being adjusted to the wood I wanted to cut.If you know enough to want this type of tool, you probably know enough to sharpen and adjust it on receipt- Or to Google for the needed information. 4Great Tool I was not sure what to expect. I have read that you have to spend $100+ to get a quality spokeshave. But this is a well made tool. The blade is thick and it sits securely in the handle. The blade was machine ground well and the back was flat. It required fifteen minutes of sharpening to get rid of machine marks and to hone a good edge. The front edge of the chip breaker needed a few minutes of filing to get the right shape. At first, it jammed with shavings very quickly, but the reshaping completely cured the problem. The bottom of the tool was flat, but needed several minutes on the stone to eliminate some deep machine gouges. Once I had tuned the tool, I was amazed how smooth it cuts and how easy it is to control. 5Well worth the $25 (and two hours) spent on it Given that it's a $25 tool, I expected corners to be cut, but I'm giving this four stars because there it has quality where it counts; the steel that the iron (blade) is made of and its depth adjustment system. It's ergonomics aren't bad either.I expect that most new edge tools will take some fettling, and given the price of this shave, I wasn't surprised to to spend about two hours with it, mostly flattening the iron and removing the chips from the as-shipped edge. (It is made of tough steel!)Once flat and sharp, the iron took a durable edge (without forming a wire) that easily passed the thumbnail test.Like all shaves, it will chatter and dig if you are "greedy" in your depth of cut, but once you figure out the maximum depth for your material, it leaves a perfectly smooth surface. (If peeling onion-skin thin ribbons is your thing, you'll have no problem) 4excellent value and superb results... my spokeshave worked excellent literally right out of the package and was superb after light honing on the blade. Highly recommended as a staple item in a hand woodworker's essential list of tools. Somehow I doubt the stanley model at the lower price would look as nice or perform as well as this quality tool... I may order one just to find out!UPDATE... after heavy use this tool is perfoming well and as with any tool you will become more sensitive to its limitations (which are very few). One might think from the other reviews you need to do hours of fine tuning which is simply not true. Take 15 minutes total to file any burrs off the casting around the blade opening, sharpen and strop the blade (as you MUST with any cutting tool), and then set with a fine cut and you can take shavings 1 or 2 1000ths thick or hog off surprising amounts of wood. As for lead paint, who cares?? aren't you going to wash your hands anyway? forty years ago, ALL tools had lead paint and nearly all paint had lead. just don't give to a baby for teething. 4Spokeshave shaped object. The Kunz 151 can be made to function. The basic pieces and design is there.By no means is this a well executed, good design. With a LOT of fiddling it is possible to get everything in position for a good, chatter free cut. Pray to God you can get everything back to the same good positions if you take the blade out to sharpen.A good design would guide everything into position. This is not an example of that.It can work. If you need a good spokeshave, are going to use it on multiple projects, or spend a lot of time with the tool, buy a good one and avoid the Kunz like the plague.If you need a shave for only a few uses, this thing can perform the task without consuming a lot of $.The one I recieved had a good edge on the blade, that needed only a tiny amount of time to be razor sharp.For a $20 shave, it is acceptable. If I had spent $50 on this tool I would be dissapointed severely. 3The spokeshave to get.. What did i do without this tool prior to now? If you are into detailed woodworking, you 'need' this spokeshave. Solid and sturdy construction, with simple adjustments and a blade made of good steel. Will last a lifetime. 5Wouldn't buy it again if given the chance I sharpened the blade to a razor but that wasn't enough. I filed the sole flat and opened up the front edge so it doesn't catch. That helped a lot more. Spent a lot of time figuring out the best way to make minor adjustments on the blade because of the HUGE amount of slop. The brass adjustment wheels fit into little slots in the blade. Problem is the slots are much bigger than the brass adjusters. Only way it works is to hold the blade up with your fingers and then adjust the knobs with your other hand. Tiny bit at a time. 1Solid performer. Not as flawless as a veritas, but great for having around the shop It's a cheap simple spokeshave. Works after tuning and sharpening. Minus star for painting the blade bed (my file didn't fit inside the throat so I still haven't removed the paint). This leads to fine chatter/high pitch screeching. However I have shaped 4 curved desk leg with this thing and it isn't a deal breaker. Just don't expect it to leave your surface completely flawless. The steel is fine, holds and edge very well. The adjustment knobs tend to walk back with the vibrations, can be compensated by backing the blade off a tiny bit then pushing a quarter turn past where the knob makes snug contact with the blade. Body has started reasonably flat despite the abuse. Once you learn the tool you can't go wrong with it for 25$. Spent less than an hr tuning and sharpening to 5000 grit. 4When you buy a spokeshave at this price point you ... When you buy a spokeshave at this price point you have to expect to do some work compared to the high priced ones. I flattened the sole, sharpened the blade, and generally trued it up. Now it behaves well and does what I ask it to do. 4Sometimes you do get more than you pay for. I was shopping for a spokeshave sometime back and saw the Kunz brand. I recognize the brand for my years in Germany, and there were solid practical tools. However, it did not have satisfactory customer ratings. So I just decided to go with the more inexpensive Stanley. That tool work well but was very light and one drop snapped in half. The k u n z what's my replacement for this and it was actually the tool expected it to be. It's more Stout and just as functional as a Stanley. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is on to the fact that is on the economy tool side but that being said you get a good tool for the money you spend. And the fact is all he has to do is stay in one piece hold an edge and and shave what. It does all of those things to my satisfaction and it survived my my dropping it, not on purpose. 4
