Clifton 550 Concave Spokeshave
Clifton Spokeshaves are made from virtually unbreakable spheridal graphite/malleable iron; the surfaces are finished and polished to give maximum comfort in the hand; the weight and balance permits the Spokeshave to sit firmly on the wood so that only a stroking action is required to make them cut. The firm seating and fine adjustment allow the woodworker to make delicate nuances in the weight of cut.
The Concave Spokeshave may be used instead of a draw knife to chamfer square timber, but is more often used as a delicate tool by furniture makers to shape on curves e.g. carbriole legs or for blending in cuved surfaces made by machine – such as posts and stair rails.
