Description
This extremely high quality wood carving tool is not only excellent for wood block carving (Mogu Hanga) and general wood carving, but has a blade that can be adjusted within the handle. This means the exceptionally long blade can be placed further up the handle as it is ground down after multiple sharpenings, meaning that this tool will outlast similar tools for many years.

Carve wood with ease with this professional quality tool that's also excellent value for money!

To adjust the blade, simply remove the bolster gently from the handle with pliers or similar implements and pivot the top half of the handle on the hinge pin until the blade and shank is fully exposed. Remove the blade and shank from the handle by lifting it directly upwards, freeing the shank hook from the wood. Sharpen your blade on a suitable whet stone. Replace the blade into the handle channel either with the hook placed in the original hole it was unseated from, or move the blade to a higher position in the handle as the blade is ground down. Please note the blade should be moved up the handle in one centimetre increments to prevent too many anchor points in the wood being made, which may weaken it. The handle will compress the blade providing friction which should help keep it in place, adhesives or lubricants are not recommended as this may affect the functioning of the tool. To prevent hook deformation, excessive backwards pressure should not be exerted on the front of the blade, should the hook become deformed and no long hold the blade in place and cannot be corrected, please contact the manufacturer for a replacement. With proper use and care, this tool should still be able to perform after the blade has been worn down by a little under twice the amount that is exposed from the end of the bolster when first purchased.

Approximate dimensions:
  • Handle length (not including bolster): 9cm
  • Handle width (widest point): 1.5cm
  • Handle width (narrowest point): 1.0cm
  • Bolster length: 1.8cm
