Michi Professional Woodcarver's Tools are used for carving block prints and for delicate finish work where a razor sharp edge is essential. The Michi mean path which is exactly what you can create in wood with these beautiful gouges.
These tools are hand forged by a master blacksmith from the best quality laminated steels, carefully tempered to Rockwell c64. The handles are Hinoki (Japanese Cypress), noted for its long-lasting qualities. The blade extends into the handle approximately 1/3 of the way, and if after years of use it becomes too short, it can be extended by whittling away a portion of the handle.
All Michi Professional Woodcarvers' tools are shipped razor sharp and ready to use.
