Michihamono Japanese Wood Carving Tool 4.5mm Straight Shallow Woodcarving Gouge
This wood carving tool has a 4.5mm cutting edge that can be used on slightly curved, detailed areas of wood for finishing purposes.
This excellent shallow gouge wood carving tool by Michihamono has a 4.5mm cutting edge made from Blue Paper Steel (Aogami No.2), great material for a high-quality cutting tool due to its high level of durability and abrasion resistance, securely embedded deeply to a Japanese cypress wood handle which is designed for easy blade sharpening. When the blade gets shorter from repeated sharpening, the handle can be trimmed down to re-lengthen the blade, giving you many more years of quality wood carving.
This tool can be used in two ways, with the tool in an upside down or reversed position, it can create convex cuts which is ideal for rounding the edges of the wood, and using it in a normal way will create concave cuts, giving you more value than what you bought with your money.
