This outstanding woodcarving chisel comes from Michihamono, a brand known for their high quality tools. Featuring a strong bolster and shank made from the same piece of steel, this superb chisel is recommended for heavy duty carving. Use the shortbent V gouge to cut deeply into the wood and as a general parting tool. This fantastic tool is also useful for detailing.
The solid wood handle is sturdy yet easy to grip. With the tool in one hand, use the other hand to strike the end with a soft mallet. The metal hoop at the end of the handle prevents hand injury while carving. The ring also offers maximum control, which is excellent for V gouge tools like this as approaching the wood from different angles can yield various results. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
