Michihamono Japanese Wood Carving Tool D-3 9mm 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.
What you see here is an excellent woodcarving chisel made for heavy duty carving. This superb chisel features a sharp U gouge blade. Use the tool to carve deep channels or grooves into the wood. This fantastic tool is also recommended for scooping or hollowing out bowls, spoons, or other concave objects. The shank and bolster are made from the same piece of high quality steel, which means it is built to last a very long time.
Also incredibly durable is the hard wooden handle. This handle also has an interesting safety feature. The end is slightly wider than the rest of the tool. This is to protect hands when striking the tool with a mallet. The metal ring around the end of the tool also makes controlling the angle of the tool easy while you carve. Quality made in Japan.
(Please note there may be some play in the hoop.)
