Barr Specialty Slicks
These Barr socket slicks will take on the toughest jobs with ease. Hand forged of carbon steel, they will take and hold a fine edge without being brittle.
The handle angles away from your work to create more hand clearance. The angle can vary, both slick to slick and style to style…we attempt to show this in the photo showing a small slick in the back with the Zilla in the front.
3 Styles available:
The Scarf Slick is a favorite among log-smiths and also very popular for dressing hand-hewn timbers; these slicks are great for cleaning up corners after logs are stacked.
Considered a must for dovetailed timberwork with a mild sweep and a curved edge which gives you a slight concave cut.
Invaluable for cutting scarf joints on your timber projects, this slick is a favorite among log and timber smiths.
It is also well-suited for cleaning up adzed timbers.
