It cuts like butter, a true joy to use. Its very hard to keep clean. You have to know how to polish metal to make it look its best. I wiped some tool protection wax on it, so pix looks a bit cloudy.The handle can be placed in 3 positions. Not sure of the wood, its ultra hard. A NZ native wood working from memory.
