The Robert Sorby Straight Carving Gouge 1 1/2" model 6103 is a well made and robust straight gouge for work on larger pieces of timber with a wooden mallet.
Similar to the Robert Sorby Straight Carving Gouge 1 1/2", Model 6104 but with a smaller gentler sweep.
Because this gouge has a very shallow sweep it's suitable for removing a lot of the tool marks from the inside of medium - large bowls.
Fitted with heavy duty double-hooped handles and a shock absorbing leather washer.
Cutting Edge: 1 1/2" (38mm)
Blade length: 6 1/4" (160mm).
Total length: 13" (330mm)
Ash handle with steel ferrules.
Comes with a polished factory grind but would benefit from a final hone prior to use.
Made in Sheffield, England.
Well proportioned and robust straight carving gouge for working large pieces of timber with a wooden mallet.
