Michihamono Japanese Micro Woodcarving 1.5mm U Gouge Straight Wood Carving Tool
This straight gouge for wood carving produces very fine grooves and channels for creating designs on wood such as fur, hair, and other decorative lines.
This very fine wood carving U gouge, from Michihamono of Japan, is made from Blue Paper Steel (Aogami) No.2, that has been professionally sharpened to ensure it is ready to use right out of the package. The shank has been embedded deeply into a Japanese cypress handle ergonomically designed to make it more comfortable to use and will last for a long time.
This tool is used for making smooth and precise decorative details on wood, where extra detail is required, such as for hair lines, or fine features. It can also be used as an alternative to a parting tool but creates a more softer outline than a v-tool can.
