Edging Tool?


I'm having a hard time locating a source for a small wood working tool. Would probably be easy enough to find IF I knew what it was called or had a picture of one. Unfortunately I have neither.
The tool I remember was a a single piece of steel about 6 inches long. On one end was an oval hole about 1/8" X 3/16" beveled to a sharp edge around its perimeter. It was used to round off the sharp corner of finished pine boards. Looked a bit like the smaller, polished chrome things you can get in drug stores to remove blackheads. I suppose it might be described as a one piece, highly s pecialized, plane?
Does anyone know what they are called so I can track one down?
Thanks,
Rob

Can't say that I have ever seen one, but can picture what it might look like, and "chamfer" as a search word comes to mind.

Any reason that a block plane wouldn't work?

I know the tool you are talking about, I can't remember what it is called other than a corner easing tool, this will do the same thing.

Not the same thing but the one you posted does the same thing but with much better results.

I've used them in the past.

Searched on "corner rounding tool" and switched to images.
Visited a couple of pages that showed them, got the name Veritas.

The internet gives you a much larger circle of people to ask. So regardless of an internet search or catalog, you are more likely to hit the answer you are looking for. Or perhaps, even a better answer.

One reason why this site works.
