Michihamono Japanese Socket Wood Carving Tool H-2 6mm Shallow U Gouge Chisel
This strong tool is built for heavy duty carving. Comes with a metal hoop at the end of the handle for maximum control.
What you see here is a first-rate woodcarving chisel. This heavy duty tool was made with the user in mind. The shank and bolster are one piece of steel, making it very strong. The sharp blade is great for detail work, such as fur, feathers, mouths, or eyes. This superb shallow U gouge can also be used to make grooves that are wider than the average U gouge.
The hard wood handle offers a nice grip, making it comfortable to hold. At the end of this amazing tool is a metal hoop. The hoop offers the tool ultimate control while carving. It also serves to protect the carver's hand from the mallet's strikes. See for yourself why Michihamono is a trusted name in Japan. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
