#8 Sweep Bent Gouge 25 mm, Full Size
This tool is forged in the same sweep as the standard #8 gouge with an additional lengthwise bend in the blade and used for roughing out and smoothing concave sections on sculpture and in bowls....

This gouge is the best available in my opinion.
Swiss made gouge
I have owned a lot of wood carving tools from knives to spokeshave and other gouges and chisels. I held off getting any swiss made tools for a long time because they seemed so expensive. One day I decided to treat myself to one and found out what a good tool really is. They are well made and hold an edge well and when needed easy to sharpen. I carve everything from Cedar to hard maple and these tools just plain work! If the price is intimidating to you try one and you'll see they are worth every penny!
