You're looking at the ultimate flat Short Bent woodcarving tool from Michihamono, makers of some of the best chisels around. The sharp, flat blade is nice and wide, making it an excellent choice for straight cuts or executing perfect angles. The strong shank and bolster are made from the same piece of top-quality steel. The shank of this tool is bent, which makes carving into tight spots, or carving at angles easy.

The steel hoop on the handle protects the wood from deforming and splitting under blows of the mallet when used. This outstanding tool is a great addition to any carver's toolbox.
