I'm putting together a wish list for my wife to help her choose Christmas gifts. I was considering including the Easy Wood Parting tool. Has anyone tried it?

No I haven't tried it. I just don't see why I would need anything other than a normal parting tool. I have 3 different sizes for different uses.

I have only one parting tool; a diamond parting tool. It cuts a 3/16 slot and tends to bind as it gets deep. The Easy Wood cuts 1/8" and claims to have greater relief and chip clearance. I was hoping someone had one and could share some thoughts on ease of cutting and resistance to binding. I sometimes do Peppermill designs where I may do literally dozens of parting cuts to establish the contours. A tool that didn't bind and didn't need sharpening seems like it might be nice.
