This is a great tool for relief woodcut printing. It was actually designed for scratch-art but I picked it up a few years ago when I was taking an intaglio class and thought I would get some nice effects from it. I did but my skills at intaglio are greatly lacking so it sat unused for awhile. Then a few months ago I found it and started using it to make marks in my woodblocks. I don't think they make them anymore so I am pretty lucky that I picked one up when I did.
Tonight I am hosting a craft night where I am going to show people how to do woodcut printing. We are going to carve small blocks and make artist cards from them. I am excited!
