Michihamono Large 18mm Wood Carving Tool Shortbent Chisel Slight Curved Shallow U Gouge, with High Speed Steel Blade, for Woodworking
This short bent gouge for woodworking makes very shallow cuts on the wood's surface. In relief carving, it's ideal for leveling and completing backgrounds where straight gouges can't access.
Michihamono, of Japan, manufactures this high-quality, large-size wood carving tool, which features an 18mm wide blade forged from quality high-speed steel, alloy steel composed of tungsten, chromium, and vanadium, making the blade hard and wear-resistant. This steel has excellent cutting performance, maintains its sharpness for a long time, and is simple to sharpen. The ergonomic handle on this tool, which secures the tang, is made of light and smooth Japanese cherry blossom wood, making it easy to hold and provide a good grip when carving.
Because of its short bent ultra-shallow gouge, this tool is great for reaching into hard-to-access areas of your wood where a straight gouge can be difficult to use. Purchase this item along with the other sizes to carve wood in a variety of widths to suit your needs (each sold separately).
