Michihamono Japanese Heavy Duty Wood Carving Tool D-4 12mm Short Bent U Gouge
This strong tool is built for heavy duty carving. Comes with a metal hoop at the end of the handle for maximum control.
This incredible tool comes from Michihamono, a popular Japanese woodcarving brand. This shortbent chisel features a tang that's curved, allowing deeper cuts. Use the U-shape to hollow out bowls, spoons, or other concave designs with ease. This tool features a sharp blade and bolster made from the same piece of high quality steel. This makes the tool strong and likely to last a very long time.
Simply hold the hard wood handle in one hand and use a soft mallet to strike the end. A metal hoop at the end of the handle assists the tool and prevent injuries from the mallet. This circular ring also gives the carver maximum control when working. This wonderful tool is a great addition to any carver's collection. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
