Description

The broad edge and shallow sweep of the Hans Karlsson Carving Gouge 90-40 Straight, makes it a great finishing ‘pushing’ gouge.

Typically used on the final stages of carving a bowl to reduce tool marks.

Functions best on the side walls of a bowl and may not be able to cut the bottom of deeper bowls. A good companion tool would be the Hans Karlsson Carving Gouge 90-40, Bent.

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

Hans Karlsson has his own reference system to describe the sweep (curvature) of a tools edge. In this case, 90 is the curve of a circle designated by the radius measured in millimeters and 40 (1 1/2″) 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 it will take and hold an incredible edge.  Hardened to 60 – 62 Rockwell

Bevel ground to 25 degrees.

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

The handle is made from locally grown Swedish ash or elm and is finished with a light coat of linseed oil.  Very comfortable in the hand.

Hans Karlsson CARVING GOUGE 90-40 Straight is designed for pushing not striking with a mallet.

Beautiful tool extremely well finished, sharpened and honed ready to use.
