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!
