I bought this and the Gransfors adze as gifts for my sweetie who is an avid carver. She wanted to make wooden bowls, and these products made it possible. They take and hold an edge and when I purchased them they were sharp enough to shave with! They still are. These are works of art. I protect them fiercely and would never let anyone but her handle or use them. Besides, they are so sharp I don't want to be responsible! LOL They are put away always in a safe keeping place.
