Glad I bought this excellent tool
Perfect for cleaning up those hard-to-reach recesses in wood sculpture. I will likely purchase all three sizes as the need occurs.
this is a VERY useful knife.
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.
