This Flexcut thumbnail gouge is a fixed handle palm tool with a #11 gouge and is 1/2" wide (12 mm). The carving gouge features a flexible spring steel shank that conforms to the contours of your projects surface to give you maximum control over every cut. The wide variety of shapes it can attain makes this such a diverse tool. When the contour of the surface changes, the angle of the handle remains almost the same, while the blade changes angles. The Flexcut thumbnail gouges are ideal for channeling and spoon carving on your woodcarving projects. The thumbnail is simple a veiner that has the top edges pulled back a bit to prevent gouging when you're doing things like eyes.

Your Flexcut Chisel Carving Tools are pre-sharpened at the factory to a highly polished razor's edge. This creates an efficient, long-lasting cutting tool. The more polished the edge, the sharper it is and the longer it will stay sharp. Keeping your tools sharp requires some routine maintenance. Flexcut thumbnail palm gouges are shorter in length with the cutting edge closer to your controlling hand for a much tighter control over your carving project. The handles are constructed from Ash wood for a more ergonomic and comfortable fit preventing fatigue. The Flexcut FR927 Palm #11 x 1/2" Thumbnail Gouge is made in the USA with outstanding quality craftsmanship for reliable cuts and supreme accuracy.
