Bromance with my Abegglen
I have the small size Abegglen and this thing is great! It makes getting the details a lot more pleasant and quick in my carving. Will I get another one? You betcha'! It's a workhorse worth its weight in gold. And a lot more comfortable than a knife to use in most situations.
Wikedly sharp and great for getting into tight spots on wood carving projects, although it is a bit awkward to use at times. It seems like it was designed for a shorter, broader handle that would afford a closer grip and greater control. Watch that back side!
One Super Tool
I have both the small and large versions of this wonderful tool. It has multiple useses but is best arould detail carving. I use it mostly for detailing love spoons.
