These long handled gouges make the job of carving violin, viola and cello plates faster and easier (and more enjoyable!). The specially designed ash handles allow the user to make powerful, efficient cuts for quick removal of excess wood. They are tempered to Rc61 and are guaranteed to hold a razor sharp edge for hours of productive, uninterrupted carving.
This set of palm handled gouges is perfect for carving violin scrolls. These short, compact tools are 5″ long and come in a set of 6: #9-10mm, #5-16mm, #3-16mm, #7-16mm, #7-12mm and #5-20mm. The blades are forged from the best German steel and are guaranteed to hold a sharp edge even after extended use in dense, hard woods.
Palm tools are the best choice for small carving projects. Many carvers hold the carving in one hand while the compact palm tool is held in the other. This one-handed carving technique allows excellent control when making intricate cuts on a small scale. Dastra palm tools are German made to the highest quality standards and are suitable for both beginners and professional carvers. Blade length: 3″, overall length 6″.
Please note: V Tools in the Dastra Palm line are 75°.
