This is a great small carving gouge. The relatively short blade (about 1") lets you get your hands close to the work, while the uniquely shaped handle can be held like a pencil, or with the flared butt in your palm.
The tool measures about 6" long overall and comes razor sharp and ready to use. Rc63-65. Includes a tip protector.
An excellent buy for any carver, beginner or pro.
Made in Japan.
