For fine shavings when working on flat and long curved surfaces such as bows, boats, slats, planks and edges. Because they are guided by hand and are sensitive to the wood structure, spokeshaves must have hefty bodies and thick cutting blades (3.2 mm). The blade can be adjusted with knurled screws, the mouth opening with supplied shims. The radius of the round version is 44 mm, while the concave version has an inside radius of 33 mm.
The corporate philosophy of Canadian tool manufacturer Veritas aims to develop new adjustment mechanisms and enhance historic plane design. With bodies made of stress-relieved spheroidal cast iron, these tools are highly resistant to cracking and distortion. Their soles are perfectly plane and trued at right angles to the sides. Their thick blades of high-strength A2 steel are hardened to 60-62 HRC and additionally subjected to a special low-temperature process to achieve a finer grain. Veritas planes are optionally available with PM-V11 blades. (The Custom series models are equipped with PM-V11 blades as standard). Two setscrews on the sides constrain the blade laterally, keeping it in place regardless of the type of stress applied. Unless otherwise stated, the blade is angled at 45°. With their material combination of finely-ground or black-coated cast iron bodies, polished brass setscrews and beautiful torrefied maple handles, these planes are also pleasing to the eye.

The DICTUM wax for planes is not only used to prevent metal planes from rusting with long-lasting effect, but also reduces the friction between the plane sole and the workpiece. The application of stains, oils or lacquers is not...
