Michihamono Japanese Woodcarving Tool H-8 24mm Shallow Socket U Gouge Chisel
This woodworking gouge has a 24mm broad cutting edge and can carve wider radius and more shallow grooves than a standard wood carving U gouge.
Michihamono's strong wood carving gouge allows you to carve wide, shallow channels and grooves. Because of the metal hoop at the end of the handle, this heavy-duty tool is designed to be struck with a mallet. The handle is protected by this hoop from repeated mallet strikes, which prevents it from breaking and deforming. This tool's handle is constructed of sturdy and strong oak wood, and the blade is forged from white steel, which has excellent edge retention and can be easily re-sharpened, making it perfect for wood carving tools.
This tool's shallow gouge produces 24mm wide hollows in your wood without the corners of the blade digging in and damaging the grain. Use this tool to swiftly remove extra wood from non-print regions of a relief carving or to create concave surfaces.
