Michihamono Japanese Heavy Duty Woodcarving Tool L-12 36mm 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 is the ultimate flat U gouge chisel from Michihamono. This premium tool is excellent for leveling or smoothing edges. It may seem perfectly flat, but it has a slight curve which adds an interesting texture to any piece. The bolster and shank are from the same piece of high quality steel, which makes this tool incredibly durable.
Also strong is the wooden handle. However, it is still easy to hold. The handle features a wide end, that helps protect hands when using a mallet. The end of the handle is surrounded by a nifty metal hoop, which adds to the tool's overal strength and offers lots of control. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
