Michihamono Japanese Woodblock Printing Wood Tool Woodcarving U Gouge Chisel 1mm
Perfect for carving very detailed lines and making smooth separations with its 1mm blade edge. Very useful for getting under tight spaces of the wood carving.
Handcrafted to perfection, this wood carving tool is forged from a strong piece of quality high speed steel to create this very fine, 1mm thin blade that is already sharp when delivered to you. The brass ferrule can be removed from the handle to reveal the whole blade. In this way, the protruding part of the blade can be adjusted according to preference. This feature can also be helpful when sharpening the blade edge by removing the whole blade from the handle and moved forward as the blade wears down, ensuring many years of use.
This tool is great for getting into very tight spaces of wood carvings that normal gouges can't get into. With its 1mm curve blade, it can create detailed lines and smooth separations such as hairs, outlines, and other similar carvings. It can also be used in carving texts on a woodblock.
