The curved cutting edge of the 1-1/2" wide by 3/16" thick blade gives a distinctive, hand-worked texture to the workpiece. This is a single-iron tool, meaning there is no cap iron or chip breaker. Set screws along the side prevent the blade from shifting sideways when it runs into a knot.
Blade is available in high-carbon steel (Rc58-60) or PM-V11® steel (Rc61-63). Measures 10-3/4" x 2-1/4" and weighs 3 lb. The ductile cast iron body is accurately machined and ground so the sole is flat. A refined yet rugged performer.
