I really enjoy making Christmas ornaments and have thrown around the idea of a multi tool detailer. It would have to be functional and allow different cutting shapes that wouldn’t get in the way of each other to often. So for my own early Christmas gift I made this from an old pry bar I had. It’s filed to be used as various small scrapers, multiple cut off tools, beading, fine lines, ring capture tool, coved edges, straight edge, notching, multiple point and beaded lines, it just does a whole bunch of cool detail work. You can laugh, I don’t mind at all. It’s a tool for me and I love it!


It’s hard to see but the notches are triangles on one side, and half circles on the other.
Handle is 19.5 inches

I never thought I would utter these words, I want a chicken Hawk. That is a great looking tool. I’m not sure I would have the patience to make ornaments but it’s so cool looking that I love it. Nice job!

Nice use of copper tubing for the ferrule. I like the Wenge handle too. How do you sharpen a chicken hawk?

I use a fine flat file on the outsides and 90s, round files for the curves. Doesn’t take much, and it holds an edge very well.
