The Half Dome has a 17mm wide blade with both a rounded side and a square corner. It is optimum to shave off large, thin ribbons then transition to the square corner to shape the walls of the foot. It is perfect for rounding out bowls, leading up to a straight foot. The half dome's unique design allows users to seamlessly transition from a curved, rounded blade to a straight, corner cut. The end of this handle is shaped like a paddle for a bonus burnishing tool useful for getting a smoother bottom or adding a sheen to the surface of your pot.
