Unusual SJ ADDIS London Carving Tool - Luthiers Tool ?
An unusual 5/16 inch carving tool by SJ ADDIS of London.
Marked ’SJ ADDIS LONDON’ with the Square and Compass trade mark on the blade.
The skewed cutting edge is similar in radius to a No.3 or 4 sweep carving gouge.
We have been told that this may be a luthier's carving tool but so far cannot find anything to back this up.
Lovely boxwood handle with brass ferrule.
No previous owner’s stamps.
Appears sharp and ready.
97/8 inches overall length.
