These carving spears are forged from Aogami #2 blue paper steel with a double beveled blade. The use of this high-carbon steel gives the blade excellent hardness and edge retention. The back of each blade is hollow ground to facilitate easier sharpening and accommodate inconsistencies in the surface being worked.
This tool is available in two profiles - a steeper curve that takes a deeper cut, or a shallower curve that allows the cut taken to be wider. In the profile with steep blade curvature we are able to offer this tool in 9mm and 12mm blade widths, with the blade of the 9mm tool also being proportionally shorter overall. The shallow blade profile is only available in 12mm blade width.
