Hahn’s Micro Woodcarving V-Tools are hand made specifically for micro wood carving and model builders. Jim Hahn makes these one-at-a-time which therefore ensures their sharpness, temper and exact profile. These Hahn Micro gouges can not only handle the extra fine details but they are really comfortable to hold. They are perfect for: miniature and fine detail work, cleaning up ridges created by gouge cuts, cleaning up tight corners, accessing tight spaces, carving fine details such as mouths and eyes, adding texture such as hair, fur and feathers. The handles are slightly smaller than the full size palm tools and very comfortable to hold.
Tips for Using Micro Carving Tools
We recommend you make multiple shallow cuts rather than one deep cut. Make sure the tool does not become buried in the wood as the cutting edge may break. Avoid “monster force” as the force you can exert on such small tool tips is enormous. Do not pry or twist the tool in the wood as they are designed for cutting only. Use Hahn’s Micro Woodcarving Tools on wood only.
