Kunz #51A Adjustable Blade Spokeshave 9-1/2" Overall Length (Flat and Round Bottom)
These #51 (#51A & 51AR) spokeshaves by Kunz Tools of Germany are the most common pattern of spokeshave in use today. Both models have two adjustable solid brass screws to easily and precisely set your depth of cut. The flat bottom version is for shaping straight or convex surfaces and the round bottom is for concave surfaces. Bodies are made from fine grey-cast stress-annealed iron and coated with Kunz’s distinctive green epoxy resin. These spokeshaves are based on the Stanley and Record models 151 and 151R.
The irons are made of high carbon German steel and hardened to 62 Rockwell C. The blades have been machined sharpened to 25 degrees. Honing is recommended before use.
