Michihamono Japanese Socket Wood Carving Tool L-3 9mm Flat 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.
This heavy duty tool is the right tool for most general woodcarving needs. The blade is mostly flat, but with the slightest of curves, thus making it great for smoothing surfaces or large rounded objects like bowls or eyes. Use it for detail work such as scoring feathers. The shank and bolster come from the same high-quality piece of steel, which means that this tool is incredibly strong.
The handle of this supreme tool is made of hard, durable wood. The end is wider than the rest of the handle, keeping the user's hand safe when striking the chisel with a mallet. The metal loop at the end of this marvelous tool also adds to the overall control. This is a tool that's built to stand the test of time. Made with quality in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
