  2. Hi folks, I live in the uk and own a 5” and 6” (this refers to the actual cutting widths) Dixon bench splitter both of which are in very good condition. My 5” blade is razor sharp however I need a replacement blade for the 6” splitter either a new/old stock or a blade made to suit. My intention is to sell the 5”splitter but only if I can get a blade for the 6”. Any help or ideas on how I can get a blade would be most welcome. thanks John

  7. Hi, I have the very same question about grind angle, did you get an answer? Thanks John (UK)
  8. Thanks guys, Bruce, I just recieved your new tool list and there are No,s 2, 4 @ 8. Your email address has my order already (hopefully I will be first in queue) TinkerTailor, In the catologue the hollow edge shaves are Dixon's dated from 2013. Dixon are no longer trading but I will try to contact them and order if available, just need to figure out how to order in German. Cheers Frederick
  9. Hi, tried BruceJohnson and he only has 'edge shave' not hollow with the profile as shown. Thanks for redponding and I'll keep searching. Frederick
  10. Hi all, Could anyone help please, I'm searching for Dixon hollow edge shaves No.'s 1-8 maximum or at least No' s 2, 3 & 4. Sometimes the tools are not stamped and must be original not "Dixon style". cheers
  11. Hi doubt there Dixon as the profiles sre very different. Cheers
  12. Hi both, Thanks for your feedback, I bought a set of 8 from 'Abbey England' which where in a Dixon style. These were shocking, when I sent images for a refund the reply was "whats wrong with them", I got a refund and Abbey England received their tools back. Abbey's service is excellent however the 'Dixon style' did not work. Maybe theres a different old feller somewhere else making good ones. Thanks again for replying, in the meantime I continue to search. Cheers
  13. Hi all, I live in the UK (near Nottingham) and just missed out on buying a set (1-8) of hollow edge shaves from Dixon 's as they had gone intio liquidation. Luckily I had bought a large set of slim-line pricking irons 6mths before. Is ther anyone out there who would sell or consider swapping for other Dixon tools? See image below for a No.1 hollow edge shave. thanks John aka "Woodentop"
