Michihamono Wood Carving Tool Japanese Woody Chisel Large 18mm Straight Paring U Gouge, with High Speed Steel Blade, for Woodworking
This wood carving tool can cave large chunks of wood with its wide sweep, great for cleaning internal radiuses such as hollowed designs on your wood.
This Japanese made Woody Chisel, one of the wood carving lines manufactured by Michihamono is made from high-speed steel, the same material used in making high-quality power cutting tools. It has a high alloy content for wear resistance and excellent toughness. Its handle is made from walnut wood with a ferrule at the end to prevent splitting and can be used with either only your hand to push the tool, or striking it with a hammer for carving more wood. This tool is similar to a normal U gouge, but the bevel can be found on the concave part of the blade.
This uniquely designed tool is great for engraving sides of the body of a wood statue and can also be used for rounding out edges of your wood. Available in 12mm and 6mm sizes for carving wood in different widths (sold separately).
