What you see here is a heavy duty woodcarving tool that's built to last. This incredible tool features a bolster and shank made from the same piece of high quality steel. This makes the chisel more durable, and therefore able to last a long time. Use the flat blade to make straight cuts or apply detail work. The short bent nature of the chisel also allows easier access into hard to reach places.
This superb tool also comes with a sturdy wood handle. At the end of the handle is a metal hoop. This hoop is useful, as it protects the user's hand from the mallet's strikes. It also offers maximum control while carving. Michihamono makes the highest quality tools with the user in mind. Made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
