Doug, that is a nice addition to your collection of handtools. I really enjoy seeing hand made tools such as this. And, in this case, it not only is a functional tool but it looks good as well.

I see from your profile that you are a retired machinist. I guess that is turning out to be a handy skill now that you are making your own woodworking tools. Nice job on the wooden end of the tool too.

Very nice. Love thast long taper on the blade. Wish I would have made mine longer. But it works, just not as prety as yours. haha
Keep it up.
