Iron For #151 Spokeshave - Hock #SPI51

Hock Handmade Plane Irons are made in a small metalworking cottage-industry located in the heart of California's Mendocino County's woodworking enclave. These irons are hand crafted to exacting specifications to satisfy the needs of the most discriminating professional. Replacement Irons - these blades offer a substantial improvement over the inferior "chrome-vanadium" irons that come with most contemporary tools. Slotted Spokeshave Iron for Record / Stanley #151 (width 2")

A steelís carbon content will determine its ability to harden with heat treatment. That hardness determines a toolís ability to hold a sharp cutting edge under abrasive pressure (wear). Generally, the harder the metal the better its edge holding, but it will be more brittle. Tempering reduces that brittleness, although it also reduces the toolís hardness and wear resistance. So a balance must be struck to decide how hard a blade should be. Hock blades are hardened to Rc62 for long edge life. Vanadium and tungsten are often added to tool steels to make the steel resist softening when used in high-heat applications. However, due to the large, hard carbide particles formed during hardening, they are difficult to sharpen and cannot be honed as sharply as a plain high-carbon steel blade. Hocks choice of high-carbon tool steel (.95%C) offers the finest, sharpest edge possible.
