What you see here is a professional woodcarving chisel. Similar to a U gouge, the blade is slightly more shallow. This makes the tool excellent for carving wider channels into wood, or smoothing out the edges in pieces. Carve crescent moons or other rounded shapes with ease using this tool's sharp blade. The chisel is also shortbent, which means it's incredibly useful for deep cuts.
The handle is made from Japanese wood. It's long, but light, which makes the tool easy to hold. Holding this tool in a variety of matters is simple thanks to the handle's simple yet ergonomic design. Quality made in Japan.
