WOOD SPOKE SHAVES
Wood Spoke Shaves are not used as much as they formerly were. The principal reason for this was the introduction some years ago of the Iron Spoke Shave. We do not believe that there are very many (the majority of imported Spoke Shaves have also been of indiffer-
ent quality) first-class Wood Spoke Shaves made in this country, the most of them being cheap and of inferior quality. The one advantage that the Iron Spoke Shave has over the other is in the greater ease in sharpening. We have hundreds of customers, first-class
mechanics, who will use nothing but the Wood Spoke Shave. They claim that a good Wood Spoke Shave is superior to the Iron, and that the steel and temper are better, that they work nicer (as one customer expresses it they cut sweeter), and we must confess that we have quite a leaning towards this opinion ourselves.
Our Wood Spoke Shaves are the John Wilson (Sheffield, Eng.) brand, and after going into the matter thoroughly, we are inclined to think they are the best Spoke Shaves made, as regards both quality and temper of steel and quality of wood.

AS TO WOOD —We used to have these in beech, box, ebony and rosewood, but have discontinued keeping the three latter. The English beech is close and firm grained. The boxwood may be a little harder, but is apt to have small knots and flaws; is also considerably more expensive. Rosewood is very pretty to look at, but is of a gummy nature and does not work as kindly as either of the other two.
AS TO STYLE —We keep the Plain Beech, the Brass Plated Beech, and the Brass Plated Beech with Screw Irons.
