This M Series knife is one of Dolan's miniature line but is still extremely tough. It features a 1/8" Wide x 1-1/8" Long high carbon steel blade that has been sharpened and heat-treated to hold its edge against even highly grogged clays. The blade is retained in a ferrule with industrial adhesive to protect against water and prevent it from coming loose. The sturdy hardwood handle is sanded and sealed against water damage. This high quality, small scale tool is perfect for fine detail carving, trimming, incising and sgrafitto work.
