Michihamono 3mm Small Straight Woodcarving Tool Round Edge Left Skew Wood Carving Flat Chisel, to Trim Corners & Angles in Woodworking
This wood carving skew chisel is ideal for smoothing out slightly curved surfaces and cleaning corners with a round finish that is difficult to reach with square-ended chisels and gouges.
This 3mm skew corner chisel from Michihamono is constructed of high-speed steel, a high-alloy tool steel with exceptional hardness and wear resistance that is ideal for wood carving. This skew chisel is guaranteed to arrive razor-sharp and can be simply resharpened when the blade becomes dull, giving you years of service. This tool includes a long-lasting handle made of Japanese cherry blossom wood that securely retains the tang while also offering a comfortable grip and making the tool easy to wield.
This tool features a strong, durable tang that can cut at an angle. This makes the tool useful when you need to cut straight lines or get into small crevices. The chisel's size also means it is excellent for detail work. This tool is available in a variety of blade sizes (each sold individually) and is a great addition to any wood carver's toolkit.
