Lie-Nielsen Toolworks Boggs Spokeshave, Bronze, Flat
Lie-Nielsen Toolworks collaborated with Kentucky based Master Chairmaker, Brian Boggs, and the results are physically beautiful tools with outstanding performance.
The 1/8" thick, 2" wide A2 steel blade has a lovely (and comfortable) radiused back edge. The blade's thickness and the fact that it is held in place between a fully-machined bed and a flat cap iron (rather than pivoting bars) make it much less prone to chatter or tear-out than other shaves we've used. The bronze body and hickory handles are beautifully executed, and the oversized knurled thumbscrews make setup less of a trial.
