John Steiger of Cleveland was primarily a maker of cooperage tools, including keg shaves and traditional spoke shaves, and in 1866 he received this patent for a combination tool that, according to Tom Lamond (pages 291-92) was unique in its method of clamping the cutter from the rear. Examples of Steiger's patent are much more rare than his conventional shaves; this is the only one we've ever seen. 16-1/2" wide with a 4-1/2" cutter; it has "J.G. Steiger, Cleve., O" and "Pat Applied For" cast into the cutter clamp. From the collection of Cliff Sapienza.
