Michihamono Japanese Wood Carving Tool H-2 6mm Shallow Socket U Gouge Chisel
This woodworking tool produces shallow cuts in your wood that are 6mm wide. Great for carving out and adding details on small wood sculptures, figurines, and other similar woodworks.
Carve wood with this heavy-duty socket woodworking gouge made by Michihamono of Japan. This tool is forged from White Paper Steel, a traditional type of metal used in high-end Japanese cutting tools, and can be sharpened to a razor-sharp edge. This tool's blade is connected in an ergonomic handle crafted out of durable, Japanese oak wood that sits comfortably in your hand. This tool has a metal hoop on the end of the handle to protect it from deforming or breaking when being struck by a mallet.
This tool has a shallow gouge that will help you take on the small-sized details of your project and is a great way for producing and hollowing out recesses, as well as cutting gouges in your wood. This superb shallow U gouge can also be used to make grooves that are wider than the standard U gouge. Use this tool along with other socket-type shallow gouges of different sizes to carve wood depending on your needs (each sold separately).
