What I Wanted
I use this to finish large wood carvings. It has a wide cutting edge and shallow sweep to leave flat surface for final cuts. The picture on the web site doesn't accurately show the tool. The website shows a deep sweep, where this tool has a shallow sweep. Someone not familiar with Swiss Made tools may not select the correct tool and be dissatisfied.
