As the main UK suppliers for Swedish tool makers Hans Karlsson Klensmide AB, are very pleased to include a selection of their exquisite carving gouges. They are probably some of the best designed, made and finished tools anywhere.
The gouges listed here have a significant role to play in greenwoodworking and traditional woodland craft.
Sometimes the same gouge can be used for a variety of tasks such as roughing-out on a pole lathe and spoon and bowl carving. At a roundwood timber framing course I joined a few years ago they were very useful where the roundwood merged into the tenon. A doubley curved adze would also have been useful.
If you would like to learn more about carving wooden bowls we run 2 day Bowl Carving Course at our workshop at Kirkley Hall Farm, Northumberland
