Michihamono Large Japanese Woodcarving Tool L-6 18mm Flat Socket U Gouge Chisel
Because of its 18mm broad blade and extremely shallow cutting edge, this tool is ideal for smoothing flat surfaces, such as leveling the backgrounds of relief sculptures.
This large-size wood carving socket type gouge is made in Japan by renown wood carving tool maker Michihamono. This tool's blade is made of high-quality materials and is forged from white steel, the purest type of high-carbon steel that can be honed to a razor-sharp edge and retains its edge well, making it ideal for wood carving. The blade of this tool is connected to a sturdy and durable oak wood handle with a round finish for a comfortable grip and a metal hoop at the end to prevent the handle from deforming or breaking when pounded with a mallet during carving.
This heavy-duty wood carving tool has an extremely shallow gouge that's nearly like a flat chisel but with slightly raised edges, making it excellent for smoothing out wood surfaces like relief carving backdrops or flat parts of a wood sculpture. To carve wood in various widths, purchase this tool together with other blade sizes (each sold separately).
