Michihamono Japanese Wood Carving Tool D-2 6mm Socket U Gouge Shortbent 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 incredible Japanese short bent socket chisel is a world class woodcarving tool. Built to last, this tool is recommended for heavy duty carving. Use the sharp, short bent blade to carve deep, narrow channels or flutes into wood. This tool is also an excellent choice for hollowing out spoons or bowls. The strong tang and bolster come from the same high quality piece of steel, making it incredibly sturdy.
The hard wood handle is easy to work with. Simply grab the tool with one hand, and strike the end with a soft mallet. Notice how the end is slightly wider than the rest of the tool. This is to protect the user's hand from the mallet. The metal hoop at the end of this outstanding tool is also useful for ensuring maximum control while carving. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
