This new style reamer is made with all of the features of the existing line of Deluxe Menzie Series graphite reamers but these are engineered with a steeper taper. This steeper taper and shorter graphite reamer length is designed to make it a bit easier flare most shaped objects without the long point of the reamer bottoming out at the back of a short cup shape or foot for example. This line of short reamers is also designed to be more durable at the small pointed tip. since there is less thin material between the widest point of the reamer and the fine 2 mm tip, the reamer point will last longer and withstand more abuse. Thus avoiding tip breakage. Menzie series tools are manufactured by Griffin Glass Tools in the United States. We are now selling the complete line of fine counterweighted paddles and reamers with hardwood handles and all steel construction. All Menzie Series Tools are designed and produced with extreme quality and durability. All graphite tools are subject to damage over time so we also carry the reamer replacement heads so you can replace just the head without buying an entire tool with handle.
