Gouges are forged in various sweeps to remove greater or lesser amounts of wood. For example, roughing out the background for a large relief panel would require a tool such as a 9 sweep. The ridges and hollows formed by this tool would then be leveled with a 2 or 3 sweep gouge. pfeil carving tools and sets are Swiss made. Swiss made implies reliability and precision. pfeil is undoubtedly the finest carving tool on the market, second-to-none in terms of manufacturing quality and durability.

    Comments about pfeil Swiss made #3 Sweep Gouge 5 mm, Full Size :

    I own a variety of Pfeil carving tools(64 to be exact)and there is no substitute. When I first started carving I struggled due to the tools available(pre-internet era), but once I discovered Pfeil's carving tools my carving went to a new level. The only advice I would give is to own great sharpening equipment(1000 & 4000 Shapton glass stone, slip-stone and a buffing wheel with jewelers rouge; preferable variable speed bench grinder). Other than that you will truly create better carvings, relief or in-the-round, in no time.
