J&D Adjustable V Gouge Leathercraft Groover Tool for Burrowing Out Leather, for Folding and Creasing Leatherwork
Create V shaped gouged in your leather with the adjustable and handy tool. Great for making leather boxes and for bending 90 degrees
This affordable and adjustable V gouge, for leathercraft, is great for carving out v shaped channels in leather of varying depths and widths. This is great for when you need to gouge out the flesh side of leather to bend the grain side neatly and without the characteristic bulge that comes with excess leather on the inside of such a fold.
To use, simply turn the spring-loaded nut to exposed the desired length of blade suitable to the channel depth you wish to carve. Once this is done, hold your leather firmly on a suitable flat surface, then place your tool with the blade contacting the leather at a shallow angle and push away from you, guiding the tool either freehand, or with a suitable ruler. To sharpen, remove the guide shroud, and run the exposed blade across a suitable, fine grit whet stone, then strop, before replacing the guide shroud.
Exercise caution as the blade is sharp, keep out of the reach of children. Store without the cutting edge of the blade contacting any hard surface to preserve the sharpness of the blade.
