The difference is remarkable. After a cumulative hour of solid spokeshaving the blade still cuts through paper with ease. The original pre-war Stanley blade gave up after a few passes. Happy customer. -- TSSpokeshave Blades
Don't forget your SPOKESHAVE. A quality blade makes all the difference! These are 3/32" thick except the SP200X which is 5/64" for the adjustable-throat models. Blades for #151-style Spokeshaves (will NOT fit the similar-looking Kunz shave!) are available in High Carbon or Cryogenically Treated A2.

*Kunz's version of the Stanley/Record #151 uses a blade that looks like the Stanley/Record blade, with a central oval slot and two adjuster slots in the corners. But its dimensions differ signifcantly and I apologize that none of our blades fit the Kunz 51A or 51AR, also called 151 on that retail website bent on world domination whose name shall not be spoken.
