This Michihamono Shallow U Gouge 21mm, is a versatile tool designed for tackling large-scale projects. This exceptional U gouge boasts a wide, 21mm sweeping blade crafted from high-speed steel, offering exceptional strength, wear resistance, and long-lasting sharpness. The blade is deeply embedded in a smooth, substantial, and comfortable 140mm Hinoki Cypress Wood handle, giving you ultimate control.

The shallow U gouge profile excels at removing large amounts of wood quickly, and efficiently while maintaining a smooth finish. The wide blade allows you to remove significant amounts of material with each stroke, making it ideal for shaping bowls, masks, and other large wood sculptures.

To use, simply grip the handle either, with your dominant hand, as you would as a pencil, for delicate carving, or in the palm of the hand, for more forceful wood carving. Use your non-dominant hand to hold the butt of the handle for extra force, or to help guide the angle of the blade, when you wood is securely held in place by external apparatus. If using your non-dominant hand to hold your woodcarving, ensure the cutting edge of the blade is never cutting towards your hand, and always wear safety gloves to prevent injury.

Store in a dry location, with the blade not contacting any hard surface. Blade is sharp, keep out of the reach of children.
