The beech guide is designed for use with a spokeshave blade modified for paring leather, i.e. with a bevel angle reduced from 25 - 30 degrees down to approx. 10 degrees. It is simple to operate and even inexperienced users can produce outstanding results. It is approximately 15cm (6") long.

It does not need expensive waterstones or elaborate sharpening systems; all that is required are readily available "wet or dry" papers. These will stick, when wet, to a variety of smooth, non - absorbent surfaces including limestone, marble, granite or even Formica. Blunt, rounded or damaged blades can be restored by using coarse grits to start with, ( say 200 or 400 ) and then moving on to intermediate grits ( 600 or 800 ) and finishing with, say, 3000 grit for a fine mirror finish. After that the blade should only need honing with a fine grit to maintain a keen edge.

Please note that the Spokehave or spare blade will need to be purchased separately!
