Carving U-Gouge - 0.5mm

$75.00

Description

This super-fine bladed carver's gouge is favoured by Japanese woodblock carvers for it's exceptionally fine cross section that retains the excellent cutting geometry of it's larger cousins.

Perfectly suited to detailed reliefs and fine textures, this curved-bottom gouge peels fine coils of timber from the work surface. View the video above to see Mike exploring the capabilities of this super fine gouge and some of it's larger cousins.

Please note that Michihamono have recently changed this model's handle. Whereas previously the handle had a square cross=section with brass ferrule, the handle is now of burnt oak with an oval cross section.

This has been done to encourage the carver to use only very gentle pressure and to hold the tool in a manner similar to a pencil grip.

Overall length: 110mm
