Michihamono Tsuki Nomi Large Wood Carving 18mm U Gouge Straight Woodcarving Tool
This straight woodcarving gouge can be used in removing excess wood without the corner of the tool digging and getting stuck.
This outstanding wood carving gouge manufactured by Michihamono is made from high-quality White Paper Steel (Shirogami No. 2), named after the color of the paper wrapped around it to differentiate it from other steels. This type of steel is suitable for making high-end cutting tools due to its toughness and will hold an edge for a long time. This tool has a ferrule to prevent the tang from breaking out of the handle. The strong and ergonomic handle is made from cherry blossom wood.
A tool that lies between Michihamono's socket wood carving hand tools that extracts large amounts of wood, and its small wood carving tools for detailed carving. This tool is used for initial roughing out, removing large chunks of wood, quicker than flat gouges and chisels. It can also be used in shaping and establishing the main form of a wood sculpture. This Tsuki Nomi has a higher angle bevel and is more durable than finer wood carving tools.
