Professional artisans at Michihamono in Japan crafted this quality woodworking short bent gouge. Forged from Blue Paper steel, which is made by adding chromium and tungsten with white steel for greater durability and edge retention. The blade's tang is embedded in a Japanese cypress hardwood handle with a round, smooth finish, allowing you to hold the tool comfortably and use the tool for longer periods.

This tool can be used in high relief carving to reach surfaces beneath rising sections of the wood where a straight gouge would be difficult to use. Available in different width sizes for carving wood in various radiuses (each sold separately).

Approximate Dimensions & Product Data:

  • Blade Material: Blue Paper Steel (Aogami) No.2
  • Blade Width: 12mm
  • Handle Material: Japanese Cypress Wood
  • Handle Length: 180mm

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.
