Editor's Review: Choosing and Using Spokeshaves

by Chris Gochnour

review date: July 1, 2006

The A151 is a copy of Stanley's original 151 and is the least expensive shave I tested. As you might expect, it had some rough edges. On the model I tried, the thumbscrew blade adjusters were rough and didn't rotate smoothly, and the body casting had deep recesses where the thumbs rest, which made it uncomfortable to hold for extended periods. In spite of shortcomings, the Anant has the basic ingredients of an effective shave. It would make a good general-purpose shave for someone with a limited budget and the willingness to spend some time tuning it up.
