Michihamono Wood Carving Tool 15mm A-5 Heavy Duty Straight Woodcarving Socket U Gouge, with Oak Handle, to Carve Channels in Woodworking
This strong tool is built for heavy duty carving. Comes with a metal hoop at the end of the handle for maximum control.
This heavy duty woodcarving tool comes from Michihamono, a Japanese brand known for high-quality. The U gouge blade is sharp and ready for action. This outstanding tool is incredibly useful for rounding out corners in a piece. Use it to carve wide grooves or channels into the wood. The tang and bolster of this first-rate chisel are forged from the same piece of tempered steel, making it strong enough for heavy duty carving.
Also strong is the durable handle, which is made of hard wood. The end of the handle is slightly wider, and features a metal ring. This allows maximum control when carving. The metal hoop is also useful for protecting the user's hand from hard blows from the mallet. Quality made in Japan (please note there may be some play in the hoop).
