Product Information:

From the makers of pfeil “Swiss made” Tools. These unique detail knives are a resurrection of a lost or little known antique carving tool. These knives (which are named after a Swiss proper name) feature dual convex and concave edges that converge to point. The 4” shaft and smaller comfortable handle means you’ll be able to reach into hard to reach areas. After a few minutes use, the Abegglen will become your favorite detail tool. Like all Swiss made tools, these follow pfeil’s legendary quality formula of the highest grade, hardened steel, polished and ground to a razor sharp edge. Approximate blade width is 3/8” for the small, ½” medium, ¾” large. Overall length is approximately 7-1/2”. Natural oil finished octagonal Acacia handle.


  • Swiss made
  • Square tang octagonal hardwood handle
  • Approximate blade width is 3/8” for the small, ½” medium, ¾” large.
  • Alloy chrome-vanadium steel blade
  • Hand-sharpened

    Perfect for cleaning up those hard-to-reach recesses in wood sculpture. I will likely purchase all three sizes as the need occurs.

    Comments about pfeil Swiss made Abegglen Detail Knife, Medium :

    I had been using curved-edged skew chisels, but figured I would give this a try. after some quick honing and stropping, this knife had an amazing edge (Pfeil uses decent steel), and i set off to try it on a variety of woods. From ebony to florida rosewood to makore to zebrawood to even lumber grade southern yellow pine... awesome form, function, and feel. The concave edge is just as useful. For those that dislike V-tools and their many limitations this is also a breath of fresh air. The curved edges (I feel) play beautifully into natural lines of foliage carving - and this knife's simplicity (it's a sharp edge on a stick, basically) lends itself to be limited only by its user's imagination. good stuff.
