description

Metal chisel with a round body, whether or not in a wooden handle, with a rounded cutting edge. Models with a wooden handle are more suitable for soft stones such as marl. Used by sculptors to carve out round features, such as the hairs or the eyes on a portrait. The stonemason uses it to cut curved elements and the groove on a window sill which prevents rainwater from running down the wall. [MOT]
