Polar Whittler blade 55 mm long
Stainless Steel blade, "whittler shaped" as in short, sharp and with a profile that gives good control.
Great, sharp blade for whittling and wood carving or other delicate work like caping.
Blade is from Finland, made by Polar in X50CrMov15 stainless steel.
The blade is 2.2 mm thick, about 16 mm high and has about 55 mm of blade.
Total length from tip to end of tang is 135 mm, the tang can be cut to fit the handle.
The Polar blades are stamped out, helping to keep the cost down.
This means you will need to file the tang and shoulders of the blade a little before the bolster will fit.
Being stainless steel, this blade is shinier than the carbon steel blades and can take more moisture before rusting.
Note: if wanting the matching bolster, get the R24.
Note: This is a specialised blade for whittling softer woods, having a higher bevel angle and a thin, hard edge. This gives great control and cutting in softer woods but for general camp chores or whittling Australian harder woods, it may need a secondary microbevel added to avoid edge chipping.
