This premium woodcarving tool is recommended for heavy duty carving. Use the wide, sharp blade to smooth out a piece without making it perfectly flat. This is for those carvers who like to add artistic flair to their masterpieces. As the bolster and shank are made from the same high quality tempered steel, this tool is powerful and ready for any artist's challenge.
The sturdy hard wood handle is comfortable to hold. Notice how the end of the handle is wider and wrapped in a metal loop. This not only protects hands from the mallet's mighty blows, but this hoop also provides maximum control to the carver. See for yourself why Michihamono is a top woodcarving name in Japan. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
