I am currently making my 8 year old cub scout son a walking stick from a scrap of Ash I had in the shop. I’ve been shaping it with handplanes first and now a round bottom Miller Falls spokeshave I was given. The MF handles are round rosewood and very comfortable. Unfortunately, that’s where the positives stop. The blade is thin, prone to chatter, and is very difficult to adjust. I’m not too interested in buying a Hock or other replacement blade as I will still be facing the difficulty in adjusting the cut. I’ve been looking at the Lee Valley Veritas shaves, and have read Chris Gochnour’s review of them in FWW. I am wondering what your experiences have been with the LV shaves. Thanks. Tom
