Hans Karlsson Heavy Duty Carving Gouge 35-30, Bent

5/5 1 review

Made by renowned Swedish wood working tool makers Hans Karlsson Klensmide AB.

The relatively short edge and medium sweep of this gouge makes this a good tool for roughing-out wood in smaller spaces or in smaller quanities, typically used to hollow small / medium size bowls.

In bowl carving terms, as a bent gouge, this tool's role is to remove wood lower down in the bowl after an adze or a straight gouge.

Hans Karlsson has his own reference system to decribe the sweep (curvature) of a tools edge, in this case 35 is the curve of a circle designated by the diameter 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

Total length 305mm (12") including a 175mm (7") handle. 

The lightly oiled handle is made from locally grown Swedish ash or elm and is designed for comfort in the hand. 

Designed for striking with a mallet, the robust handle is double-hooped with a brass ferrule at each end of the handle.

There is a shock/sound absorbing nylon insert incorporated into the end of the handle.

Beautiful tool extremely well finished, sharpened and honed ready to use.

    Gouge arrived in the US in a little over a week as is typical with Woodsmith.

    As always, the quality delights in both form and function. Gouge is most "heavy duty" and a bit larger than expected - in a good way!

    My first REAL gouge - very versatile and only slight a touch up appears to be needed to keep this one factory sharp. Very impressive tool from a reliable supplier!

    PS - i use this gouge on spoons, ladles and bowls.
