Michihamono Japanese Socket Woodcarving Tool H-5 15mm Shallow U Gouge Chisel
This woodworking gouge features a 15mm broad cutting edge that is ideal for carving concave patterns in wood and can carve wider grooves than a standard U gouge.
Michihamono, a Japanese manufacturer recognized for its high-quality tools for wood carving, produces this heavy-duty woodcarving gouge. The blade and bolster of this tool are constructed of the same high-quality white steel, which has excellent edge retention and is easy to re-sharpen, making it ideal for woodcarving. This amazing tool also comes with a sturdy oak wood handle that is comfortable to grasp and operate with. The handle has a strong metal hoop at the end to prevent it from breaking or deforming when hit with a mallet.
Carve concave patterns into your wood with this shallow gouge. In relief carving, this woodworking gouge is useful for removing non-print regions and can also be used for carving recesses. Other blade sizes are available for this excellent wood carving tool (each sold separately).
