Michihamono Woody Chisel Wood Carving 6mm Small Woodworking Straight U Gouge
This tool is great for making recesses and trimming internal curves of wood surfaces.
This superb wood carving tool hand-made by Michihamono is similar to a standard U gouge, but with the bevel on the concave side of the blade. The ergonomic handle is designed to fit comfortably in your palm, allowing you to apply force with ease when carving. A ferrule is inserted at the end of the handle, to ensure it can resist blows of a hammer. This tool has a blade forged from high-speed steel and is sharpened by professional blade makers so it is guaranteed sharp and can be used as soon as you take it out of the packaging.
This paring gouge has a 6mm wide cutting edge great for producing a small, concave surface on the edges of your wood. It can also be used for shaping rounded areas and sides of the body of a small wood sculpture and figurines. Available in 18mm and 12mm sizes to carve wood in different widths (sold separately).
