Thank you for your great service in respect of my order
Made by renowned Swedish wood working tool makers Hans Karlsson Klensmide AB.
The broad edge and very shallow sweep makes this a great finishing gouge, typically used on the final stages of carving a bowl to reduce tool marks.
Hans Karlsson has his own reference system to decribe the sweep (curvature) of a tools edge, in this case 150 is the curve of a circle designated by the radius measured in millimeters and 30 (1 3/16") is the length of the cutting edge in mm from corner to corner.
The blade is made from high quality ball bearing steel (SS2258) so will take and hold a great edge.
Hardened to 60 - 62 Rockwell.
Ground to a low 20 degrees with a flat bevel.
Total length 255mm (10") including a 140mm (5 1/2") handle and brass ferrule.
The lightly oiled handle is made from Swedish elm and very comfortable in the hand.
Designed for pushing only, not striking with a mallet.
