Item D13 - Stanley No. 52 Spoke Shave.

Along with the ever popular Stanley No. 51 spoke shave there was a companion shave, the No. 52 (Leonard Bailey was the source of both of these shaves. The No. 52 has relatively flat handles that put the hands close to the plane of the cutting edge, as opposed to the raised “gull” handles of the No. 51. Apparently most folks did not like this, as you see about 10 No. 51 shaves for every No. 52. But here is a (somewhat battered) example of the No.52. It has lost some japanning and gained some splotches of paint, but it is sound, with a SW blade, and at this price is worth a try. Good.
