Wanna see my Tool?

Ahhh... the love of an old favorite tool. Long thought lost, but now is found!

I use my little tool to incise lines around a pattern laid out with stencils. It's just a thin brass tube cut with a jewelers saw.

This time I'm trying something new and leaving islands of detail that are simply slipped.

Hey, thought I might make a suggestion....Have you ever considered making this as a tool to sell? I would buy it!
