Michihamono Japanese Socket Woodcarving Tool H-8 24mm 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.
What you see here is a world-class woodcarving chisel. This fantastic tool is similar to a U gouge but with a shallow curve. Use this sharp blade to round off edges in your work. This trusty tool is also excellent for larger projects or carving bigger shapes. The bolster and shank are one solid piece of high quality steel, meaning that this tool is built to last a long time.
The solid wood handle is hardy, but still fits easily in the carver's hand. A metal hoop can be found at the end of the handle. This hoop offers maximum control, and is also a neat safety measure as it protects the user's hands from the blows of a mallet. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
