Carving tools - hamlertools
A modified straight chisel reground for stabbing operations. The grind is tapered with the end sort of oval shaped. This geometry makes it easier to guide and turn curves. It is extremely important to have a polished and sharp edge. If the tool will shave hair off the back of your hand the amount of pressure required to cut the wood and penetrate is greatly reduces allowing greater control for following your line and disturbing unwanted wood fibers.. The larger  stabbing tools will also work for removing stock up to the stabbing cut when doing background removal for carvings or medallion inlays.
