Brass parting tool by Kobalt.
This is quite simply the most beautiful parting tool yet created by the hand of man. Absolutely lovely. Oh, a parting tool? That's the tool you use to create those rounded grooves you see in concrete surfaces. The grooves are there so that when the concrete cracks, and it will crack, the cracks occur at the bottom of the grooves where you don't see them. This tool is slid over the surface of the concrete after it has started to set up, but is still workable.
What a joy it must be to use such a profoundly beautiful piece of metal on the job, and what pride there must be in creating it. Yes, it's expensive.
