Michihamono Japanese Specialized Wood Carving Veiner Triangular Blade Type 3mm Round Keel V-Gouge Straight Parting Tool, for Woodworking
The small blade is great for intricate and detailed carving, perfect for round yet deep cuts in wood.
This small, high quality Japanese 3mm woodcarving veiner tool, from Japan, is forged from high-speed steel which ensures the blade stays sharp for a long time and is carefully and precisely embedded into a Japanese Cypress wood handle. This tool is guaranteed to be sharp right out of the package.
Compared to the regular parting tools or v gouges, this type of wood carving veiner has a more rounded keel that is designed for creating wavy patterns on wood surfaces such as wrinkles in clothes, skin (such as the forehead of Noh masks), and other similar designs.
