This spokeshave is the latest addition to the Veritas line of fully functional miniature tools. At less than an ounce and only 89mm(3.1/2") long overall, it is a third the size of their regular flat-bottomed spokeshave, and is useful for making fine shaping cuts where a full-sized tool would be too bulky or awkward to use. Made of investment-cast stainless steel, the low profile body has a 45° blade bed, a tight fixed mouth opening, and hardwood handles. The sole and blade bed are machined. The 19mm(3/4") wide and 1.6mm(1/16") thick A2 blade is hardened to Rc60-62. Supplied in a fitted embossed leatherette box, it makes a great gift.
