This unusual tool (named after its inventor Melvyn Firmager) is suitable for both parting and scraping activities.
The tip is shaped for parting, the hollow-ground edge section for shear scraping. At 1/16" thick, the rigid high-speed steel (Rc62-64) blade produces a very clean cut.
Comes complete with instructions, including how to fashion a fluted parting edge or round the edges slightly to assist turning miniature coves.
Measures about 11" long overall. Hardwood handle scales.
Made in England by Crown Tools.
