"......not accustomed to this kind of personal service"
Made by renowned Swedish wood working tool makers Hans Karlsson Klensmide AB.
The relatively short edge and medium sweep of this straight 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.
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 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 in oil to 60 - 62 Rockwell.
Total length 305mm (12") including a 175mm (7").
The lightly oiled handle is made from locally grown Swedish ash and shaped 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.
