Carve wood with this medium-size, heavy-duty socket woodworking gouge manufactured by Michihamono, a renowned maker of Japanese carving tools. This tool is made of White Paper Steel, a traditional Japanese metal used in high-end cutting tools, and can be honed to a razor-sharp edge. The blade of this tool is attached to an ergonomic handle made of strong Japanese oak wood that fits nicely in your hand. When pounded with a mallet, this tool features a metal hoop on the end of the handle to protect it from deforming or splitting.

This tool features a shallow gouge that will assist you in creating and hollowing out recesses, as well as producing coves in your wood. This fantastic shallow U gouge may also create grooves that are broader than the normal U gouge. Carve wood with this tool and other socket-type shallow gouges of various sizes, depending on your needs (each sold separately).
