I was really let down when this product arrived. The cutting edge had an uneven and unfinished grind with divets in it. The tool has a radial twist from the shank where it attaches to the handle down to the cutting edge. For such a high priced tool I expected better craftsmanship. I spent quit a bit of time reworking the tool before it was useable.
