With this excellent wood carving skew chisel by Michihamono of Japan, you can shape curved edges and finish deep corners of your woodwork, where regular gouges and chisels cannot reach. The blade is forged from high-quality Aogami No. 2 cutlery steel, which is a useful and reasonably-priced steel that is easy to maintain. The blade of this tool is embedded into the handle, so that as the blade grows shorter from repeated sharpening, the handle can be carved down to re-lengthen the blade, allowing you to use it for many years to come. The handle of this cutlery knife is made from cherry blossoms wood, giving its user an easy and comfortable grip.

This Michihamono 6.0mm Short Skew Japanese Cutlery Steel Knife, is one of the more frequently used types of carving knife. This tool can be adapted for many purposes, from rough carving to finishing. The overall blade can be used to make angled cuts, while the sharp edge can be used for detailing your woodwork.

Before using this tool, keep in mind that this quality wood carving tool features an extremely fine, detailed blade that should only be handled with great caution. When cutting wood, this tool should not be struck with any object, such as a mallet. Do not attempt to remove large amounts of wood per stroke. Trim or shave only a small amount of wood from your project at a time using multiple small strokes. Do not use this tool to penetrate the wood any more than the thickness of the blade. Never use the blade of this tool as a lever to remove wood. Cutting strokes should be only vertical (i.e., up or down), with minimal pressure applied. Horizontal shearing force, in any axis, should never be applied.

Precautions: The blade edge is sharp, keep out of reach of children. Store the blade without coming into contact with hard surfaces to avoid dulling the cutting edge.
