Three notable features of this elegant tool are its narrow width, fluted tip and wedge-shaped cross section. Not only does it part off with the minimum of effort and timber wastage but the fluted form to the tip produces scribing edges which give a clean cut on the faces of the timber. Excellent for producing small beads too. HSS blade, handle length 216mm (8.1/2").

Fluted parting tool.Not a bad tool....BUT....because it is very narrow (1/8 inch) it constructs a bead which is too deep causing the bead to break out. Tried various approach/cutting angles but with the same result.
