**Note: Dastra Long Bent Gouges are made to order. Wait time is normally 6-12 weeks**
Curved gouges (also called long bent) are designed for carving concave objects such as bowls and vessels, and will reach into areas impossible to get at with straight gouges. These Dastra carving tools are full-size, professional gouges. The overall length averages 10″ and the blade is curved along its entire length. Each tool is fitted with an octagon hornbeam handle sized in proportion to the blade. The blades are hardened to Rc61 and are buffed to a satin finish. The profiles are beautifully ground and polished by expert craftsmen so that each tool reflects a perfect balance of strength and grace. Our Dastra tools arrive expertly sharpened and ready to use! Made in Germany.
