Veritas Spokeshave Flat Base

by Veritas

Veritas Spokeshave Flat Base has been designed for smooth, effective, chatter-free shaping of chair spindles, panel edges, paddles and tool handles.

The 3.2mm(1/8") thick PMV-11 steel blade, machined lever cap and blade bed achieve chatter-free cutting in virtually all conditions. The ductile cast iron body is fitted with hardwood handles, shaped for comfort and control. The toe serves as a thumb rest allowing the user to choke up on the body to attain exceptional control for fine work. Twin adjustment wheels quickly and accurately control the cut depth and skew and shims let you adjust the mouth opening as needed.

Each spokeshave weighs about 450g (12 oz) and is 267mm (10.5") long overall.

Veritas spoke shaves, flat and curved based

Both the flat and curved Veritas spoke shaves worked beautifully after honing on my first project which was to shape some wooden spoons. They have a lovely feel, very similar to the Lie Nielsen version which I have also used. Very little to choose between them.

Lovely product

Great tool!


Veritas spokeshave exactly as ordered plus very fast delivery thankyou.


Very pleased with this purchase, as I expected to be, as I have a couple of other Veritas tools and they are a very good.
This spokeshave is a breeze to use, and even my seven year old niece enjoyed it and found it easy (she made a spatular with a bit of help).
The build quality is excellent. The balance is good and there is enough weight. What I particularly liked was the adjustment mechanism to control the cut; very fast and precise.
I have only owned an old Stanley spokeshave before so I don't have an opinion against other good makes, but I would certainly recommend the Veritas to anyone.

Veritas Flat base Spokeshave

All Veritas products I have purchased are both reasonably priced and high quality. I particularly like using the spoke shave as it lends itself to more creative shaping. Comfortable handle size and engineered for ease of use.
