HF Osborne Spittler Skiver/Splitter

Recommended Posts

Got a good deal from an antique dealer on the much maligned Spittler Skiver. I stripped the old paint off and clear coated the castings. I ground out the old scrapes off the round ring with the index numbers, smoothd the inside handle surfaces and added a small coil spring over the original spring blade. After getting the blade back in shape I find it works remarkably better than I expected. The coil spring may not be the most elegant solution but for less than $3.00 the handles hold well and are adjustable within a skive.
