You're looking at the ultimate flat shortbent 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. This shank is further bent, which means leveling relief carvings or carving into tight spots are now simple maneuvers.
This superb tool is built to withstand the test of time, making it an excellent value. The sturdy wooden handle is wide at one end, surrounded by a metal ring. This convenient hoop gives the carver maximum control. It also protects hands from the mallet's blows. This outstanding tool is a great addition to any carver's toolbox. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
