This wood carving tool with a medium gouge is great for producing a concave surface not too shallow and not too deep. Great for initial roughing out of wood carving.
This excellent, large woodcarving tool is manufactured in Japan by Michihamono from the same material used in making high-end traditional Japanese swords, the Blue Paper (Aogami No.2), this material is specifically developed for blades and other cutting tools. It has high wear resistance and toughness. The blade is inserted in a sturdy Japanese cypress wood handle. The cutting edge is already sharpened so you can use this tool as soon as it is delivered to you.
This tool is more preferred to the chisel for finishing surfaces because of its curved edge, allowing the tool to carve wood surface without the corners digging in, creating clean cuts.
