This wood carving short bent gouge can carve deeper hollows than long bent gouges. Great for hollowing recesses such as in making bowls, spoons, and other concave surfaces.
This woodworking short bent gouge is handcrafted by professional craftsmen at Michihamono in Japan. Forged from high-quality Blue Paper (Aogami No.2), made by adding chromium and tungsten to white steel for increased toughness and improved edge retention.
