 Wooden Spokeshave finished at last.
Not bad for 50p.

Dai (Japanese Plane body) making chisels.
These are ground mirrored blunt, so they act like a scraper. One of Bill Carters Top Tips.
Superb steel from 2 of my favourite old cast steel producers.

Notice the time, skill and attention on the tangs in comparison to the poor quality ones on the Crown Butt chisels I got - just because they had the rosewood handle so went with my Sorby's! - but I rather fancy the Pfeil ones - they look nice. But I don't need them now!
