Michihamono Japanese Heavy Duty Woodcarving Tool H-5 15mm 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.
This trusty woodcarving chisel is made for heavy duty carving. Use the shallow blade to round off edges or add texturing to a piece. The sharp blade is similar to a U gouge, but the shallow curve allows for wider grooves or channels. The shank as well as the bolster are made from the same piece of high- quality tempered steel, adding strength and durability to the tool.
The hard wood handle is easy to hold and easy to work with. At the end of the handle is a metal ring. This hoop allows for maximum control and helps protect the carver's hands from mallet blows. This excellent tool was designed to last a long time, making it the perfect addition to any carver's toolbox. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
