This outstanding, Japanese made, 1.5mm wood carving V Gouge is from Michihamono, a renown Japanese woodcarving tool maker. It's high strength high-speed stainless steel blade retains a superior, razor-sharp, cutting edge longer than inferior grade steel. The long shank is deeply embedded in the tool's comfortable and smooth Japanese Cypress wood handle.

Use this micro-sized, quality tool for carving intricate patterns in relief carvings, as well as channels and complex patterns on figurines, wood block prints, and more.

To use, simply grasp the handle with your dominant hand, while holding the item you wish to carve with your non-dominant hand, and make smooth forward motions with the blade to cut the wood you wish to carve at a shallow angle. Ensure the blade is not in motion towards any body part to avoid injury when carving. Use multiple cutting sweeps for best results, rather than large cuts.
