Santa was indeed good to you. Auriou makes very fine tools. I suspect they will make a great many cuts as smooth and easy as working butter.
I have a few old mallet sized chisels and gouges that I us sometimes on my sticks. They can offer a surprising amount of leverage used by hand, and when sharp enough (the Auriou will be that) can do surprisingly fine detail.
