What you see here is an excellent woodcarving chisel. This tool's blade is similar to the shallow U gouges, but with less of a curve. This makes the tool incredibly valuable when reaching into tight spaces or assisting with texturing. Use this sharp blade for miniature cuts or other detail work as well.
Michihamono's long-handled series of blades are light, but sturdy. Because of this, these professional tools are easy to hold and easy to carve with. The blade is tiny, but made of high qulity tempered steel, meaning it is ready for most woodcarving tasks.
This outstanding tool is a great value for money. Quality made in Japan.
Please note: The background grid in the picture is in square millimetres. The handle is approximately 18cm long.
