I Love This Tool
I love this tool. It has a myriad of uses. But, it is a two handed tool and should be used on a project held in a vice or other holder. It could be dangerous if used with one hand. Because of its double edge and shape, caution should be used. I own all three sizes. I love them all but really, only the smallest size should be referred to as a "detail" knife.
Another Solid Tool
I use this tool for fine detail carving in tight places. While it is rather a challenge to strop, its manuverability in tight places is superb.
