If you're accustomed to looking at carving tools with highly polished walnut handles, these probably don't look like much to you. These are utilitarian carving tools, and the makers concentrated on the design and the cutting edge.
From this carver's standpoint, that's all that really matters. The other thing you don't see here is the frightening price tag...
There is a bewildering array of gouges available to carvers. Frankly, it doesn't take long to discover that only a couple of them are right for decoy carving. This one has enough radius that the corners won't dig in and spoil your work, yet is flat enough to use over an entire body block. Once you try it you'll recognize that it was designed by a carver...it's that handy a tool.
Both the gouge and knife are included with our Expanded Knife Set in an Aromatic Red Cedar box.
