I think they would be useful in some situations. Instrument making for example…

They definitely look cool. I’d love to hear from someone who has tried them.

I wish I had those when I used to make patterns for belt buckles. I can see how a luthier might use those as well.

I have never seen the like before – My first thought was that they should be pulled, rather than pushed, it strikes me you would have far greater control on a pull stoke.

I don’t suppose any body has seen a video of these in use?

They’re like tiny little Spokeshaves that you push with your palm?!? VERY cool looking but are they only used for areas you can’t get a spokeshave into or what?

They’re cute. Am I the only guy that subconsciously wanted to go golfing after looking at the pictures on the right?

They registered in my brain as little tiny drivers.

The double convex would be more useful for guitar braces because
you can scallop/feather the ends or middles with a lengthwise convex
plane. Of course you can do it with a chisel too. For guitar planes,
look at the distance from the edge of the plane to the corner of the
iron – that’s the limit of how close you can get to the soundboard.
