Michihamono Woodcarving Woody Chisel 21mm Large Very Shallow Carving U Gouge
A compact wood carving tool great for producing shallow facets that can be worked over wood surface for smoothing and completing it.
This handy wood carving tool is handmade in Japan by Michihamono. Forged from high-speed steel, a material also used in making high-quality power saw blades and drill bits, that exhibits a high level of strength and hardness and is strong against hardwood. It has a short, gourd-shaped handle made from walnut wood that fits well in your palm and easy to be applied with force. A ferrule can be found at the end of the handle to keep it from splitting and holding the shank in place.
It has an extremely shallow cutting edge with a 21mm wide blade which is convenient for finishing flat surfaces such as in levelling the backgrounds of a relief carving. This tool can be used easily with one hand and it can also withstand repeated blows when used with a hammer.
