These are an essential tool for all your trimming needs. They are a more affordable alternative to the excellent (but brittle) tungsten carbide trim tools. Each tool is made of stainless steel with a thin layer of titanium nitrite fused to the surface—this increases the tools strength, keeping it sharper longer, without making the whole tool brittle. The handle is made from oiled beech wood, shaped to fit in your hand but with a flat side to prevent it from rolling off your work surface. Made in the USA with domestic and international materials.
