This hook shaped knife is a great addition to any bonsai or wood carving tool kit. The high carbon hand forged blade is sharpened along one edge and over into the finely pointed hook. That allows it to make very precise shall cuts. It it a fantastic tool for removing very small slithers of bark when cutting shari on small bonsai trees. The compact curved shape allows it to cut very well in confined spaces and inside hollows. This knife is also spectacular for removing old soft or rotten wood deep inside hollows. Cuts the hardest wood with ease.
The beautifully finished blade is retained within the oiled hardwood handle by brass rivets.
