This large-size, wood carving socket type gouge, from Japan, is manufactured by Michihamono. Made from high-quality materials, this tool's blade is forged from white steel, the purest form of high carbon steel that can be sharpened to a razor-sharp edge and has great edge retention, perfect for wood carving. This tool's blade is attached to a wooden handle made from strong and durable oak wood that has a round finish for a comfortable grip and a metal hoop at the end to keep the handle from deforming or cracking when being hit with a mallet during carving.

This heavy-duty wood carving tool has an ultra-shallow gouge, almost similar to a flat chisel but with the corners of the blade slightly raised, making it ideal for smoothing out wood surfaces such as backgrounds of a relief carving or flat areas of a wood sculpture. Buy this tool along with other blade sizes to carve wood in different widths (each sold separately).

Approximate Dimensions & Product Data:

  • Blade Material: White Steel No. 2

Please note: The blade edge is sharp, keep out of the reach of children. Store without the blade contacting any hard surface to avoid dulling the cutting edge.
