#8 Sweep Gouge 18 mm Full Size
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...

Premium Carving Tool for the Professional
If your a beginner, novice, or Pro, buy this tool. The reason why Pfeil is considered the best is because they r the best. This Gouge stays sharp even after hours of carving on all domestic and exotic hardwood species. Very impressed. Just a minute of strobing after a few uses seems to keep these sharp as new.

Tried and true
I make Windsor chairs which require scroll carvings on the crest rails and carved knuckles on the arms. The carving is usually in oak so the carving tools need to be sharp and tough. Even though these tools don't seem made for mallet use, they will stand up. I've gradually accumulated all the different sweeps I need.
