Description

Hans Karlsson CARVING GOUGE 150-30 STRAIGHT is a rarely available tool.

Made by renowned Swedish wood working tool makers Hans Karlsson Klensmide AB.

The broad edge and very shallow sweep makes this a great finishing gouge, typically used on the final stages of carving a bowl to reduce tool marks.

Hans Karlsson has his own reference system to describe the sweep (curvature) of a tools edge, in this case 150 is the curve of a circle designated by the radius measured in millimetres.

30 (1 3/16″) is the length of the cutting edge in mm from corner to corner.

The blade is made from high quality ball bearing steel (SS2258) so will take and hold a great edge.

Hardened to 60 – 62 Rockwell.

Ground to a low 20 degrees with a flat bevel.

Total length 255mm (10″) including a 140mm (5 1/2″) handle and brass ferrule.

The lightly oiled handle is made from Swedish elm and very comfortable in the hand.

Hans Karlsson CARVING GOUGE 150-30 STRAIGHT  is designed for pushing only, not striking with a mallet.
