Re: Any spokeshaves that work with one hand?

I don't find the Stanley ones work well one-handed, or ones with turned handles. Traditional style wooden spokeshaves with blades mounted using two tangs into a stock that's a single piece of wood seem best one handed.

This allows you to whittle with effectively a cut-depth-limited pocket knife. But it can't compare in terms of either speed or accuracy to a spokeshave used with two hands on a shaving horse.
