Michihamono 1mm Premium Micro Wood Carving Tool Round Edge Flat Chisel, with Adjustable Blade, to Carve Details in Woodworking
A woodworking tool for creating intricate details on your wood, great for small-sized woodworks such as figurines, sculptures, and relief carving.
This wood carving tool by Michihamono has a very fine 1mm wide razor-sharp blade and designed to be adjusted so that it can be placed further up the handle as it is ground down after multiple sharpenings, meaning this tool will last for many years. It is made from high-speed steel that has high strength and wear resistance, perfect for wood carving. The long, ergonomic handle is made from Japanese cherry blossom wood that feels comfortable to wield and gives you great control when using.
This 1mm flat chisel can be used in producing extremely fine decorative lines in relief or figuring carving such as hair, fur, and other similar designs. It has a rounded cutting edge to create lines with soft edges. A great investment of your money as it can last longer than other similar wood carving tools because of its adjustable blade.

To adjust the blade, pivot the top half of the handle on the hinge pin after removing the brass bolster from the handle with pliers or a similar tool to expose the shank and blade. Lift the blade upwards to separate it from the handle then proceed to sharpen it using a whetstone. You can detach back the blade to its original position or a higher position if it has been ground down at increments of one centimeter each to ensure that the tool remains strong by minimizing the anchor points in the wood being made. Adding adhesives or lubricants is not needed as the handle provides enough friction to hold the blade in place. This tool should still post excellent performance even after the blade has been worn out up to two times its original size during a purchase when used with proper care. Contact the manufacturer for a replacement in the case that the hook is damaged.
Please note: The blade edge is sharp, keep out of the reach of children. Store without the blade contacting any hard surface to avoid dulling the cutting edge.
