This heavy duty tool is an excellent addition to any woodcarver's collection. The shallow blade is great for carving channels or flutes that are wider than the average U gouge. Use it for detail work such as scoring feathers. The shank and bolster come from the same high-quality piece of steel, which means that this tool is incredibly strong.
The handle of this fantastic tool is made of sturdy wood. The end is wider than the rest of the handle, which keeps the user's hand safe when striking the chisel with a mallet. The metal loop at the end of this marvelous tool also adds to the overall control. This is a tool that's built to last through the ages. Made with quality in Japan.
