This heavy duty woodcarving tool comes from Michihamono, a famous Japanese brand. The bolster and shank are forged from the same piece of high-quality tempered steel, which means that it's incredibly strong and built to last a long time. Shallow U gouge chisels such as this are great for fine details such as fur, hair, or feathers. This excellent tool can also carve wide grooves into wood with ease.
The handle's hard wood is durable, but still comfortable to hold. The end of the handle features a metal ring. This loop allows for maximum control, and even protects hands from injury due to mallet strikes. A great value for money. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
