This is a great addition to the Arbortech woodcarving line. The Mini-carver is excellent for carving and shaping fine detailed woodwork. The 2 inch diameter mini-carver blade together with the 6 inch long extension neck allows rapid stock removal and access into confined areas. Uses include model-making, toy-making, pattern making and most small carving projects. It can provide precision accuracy for relief carving and allows excellent control. This is fully assembled and ready to use.
