Designed for extreme detail used in Netsuke or caricature carving. These tools have their edges forged down even thinner than our other palm tools. Cutting with these fine edges allows the carver to work extremely close to adjacent detail without crushing wood fibers that can lead to "chipping out".
Palm Tools included: FR802 #5 x 2.5 mm, FR800 #9 x 1mm, FR801 #9 x 1.5mm, FR803 45 deg. x 1mm.
These very deep gouges are designed with a parabolic curve. They are designed to be rolled up to 90 degrees and change shape from a deep #11 to a smooth #3 in one continuous cut. The thumbnail grind keeps the corners from digging into the wood as the tool is rolled.
Palm Tools included: FR725 #11X x 3/16", FR925 #11X x 5/16", FR926 #11X x 3/8", FR927 #11X x 1/2".
