Hope this is the right forum section. I'm gonna (probably) get a spokeshave for a late father's day present for neck carving. I plan to go with a nice one, though the Lie Nielson is a but much for me. Right now I'm thinking on the Veritas options here: Veritas® Flat, Round and Concave Spokeshaves - Lee Valley Tools or Cast Round Spokeshave - Lee Valley Tools I know many people will recommend an older Stanley or Record, but if I can't find one, what do you suggest? Flat bottom or round?
