Product Reference: RI-FR005-XL
Designed for heavy duty work, the blade is 12" long and made from chunky 60mm x 10mm EN45 spring steel, to withstand the twisting forces exerted on it. Fully hardened and tempered. The blade is ground tapered the full width of the blade, from top to bottom and the canal or cutting edge is rolled, as with our premium froe. This helps it to glide through the wood, making it easier to use, particularly when entering the wood.
It comes with a substantial 17 1/2" beech shaft which fits snugly into the tapered socket and holds fast. The shaft has been treated with raw linseed oil which improves both the appearance and durability of the wood. (It is recommended that you feed the wood with further applications of linseed oil from time to time).
