Amazon have some with the body made in Mexico and blade made in England. They are okay for $22.

After looking a little more the concave one is what I could best use.

Look up ‘scorp’ – must be some good ones on Amazon.

From what I see a scorp is not the right tool for what I am trying to do.It looks to be more of a tool to hollow.It could be used but I think the concave spokeshave would be better .A concave spokeshave is shaped so that it can work or shape cylinder or dowel shaped objects like my flutes.Thanks!

Concave spokeshaves don’t work as well as they seem like they would unless you’re working on a piece that has a radius fairly close to the radius of the curve on the spokeshave. If the piece is a lot smaller, then the blade contact area is pretty much the same as a flat spokeshave. Maybe it would work on a flute, I can’t say for sure. Have you used a flat spokeshave to see how it would work for you?

Otherwise Veritas tools typically sell for pretty close to full retail since they are good quality tools. If you’re ok with a fairly small discount that’s fine, but you’re not going to spend much more to buy it new from them especially if you catch one of their free shipping offers or buy on their black Friday sale.

Have your say...
