The tools are used for forming the surface, shaping, making deep hollows and fine lines carving.

The ash handles are lightly waxed to protect them whilst retaining its natural color and feel. All chisels in the set are fitted with smaller handles, which our customers find to be more comfortable in usage than the larger one.

The set also includes a leather strop and a polishing compound to make the tools sharp again when needed.
BeaverCraft chisels are handcrafted both for beginners and professional wood carvers.

This gouge set will be perfectly fit for a diverse use however you see needed. Carving chisels and gouges are a greatly practical tool for both adding details to the carving as much and in any style as you like and also for creating a general workpiece out of unshaped wood blank. Some people say that gouge tool has even replaced the general carving knives in some European countries, how true that is – is not for us to decide.
That’s why you simply owe it to yourself and your whittling hobby to get a wood carving gouge set – at least to try the tools out and decide for yourself if they are that irreplaceable in the workshop (and yes, they are).
Gouge set materials
All the products and goods that are made by BeaverCraft here in Ukraine (the biggest country of Europe, by the way) is meant to be and stay the face of the company that presents European class and level of goods that is usually expected by the customers anywhere in Europe and abroad. That’s why we keep it our number one goal to only have the greatest materials presented and implemented in any of our instruments to not disappoint you at any time.
The blades are made of the steel high-carbon compound that results in a tougher instrument that is able to work with hard and soft woods equally easily, is easier to strop and keep sharp because of its traits and is overall an optimal material for wood working tools. The shafts are light, made with wood and finished with oil for preservation and protection of the handle. Their shapes are well thought through and won’t bring you any unnecessary discomfort more than the one that you experience after working for a long period of time. Don’t forget to exercise your hands and stretch once in a while when you carve!
Working with a wood gouge
These 4 wood gouges fulfil different purposes so you have to know what they can help you do, right? The short bent gouge (the one that’s a little bit crooked) will be of great use if you want to carve any sort of concaves, round shapes and deep elements. The K5/12 one is awesome for roughing out the workpiece and giving it a general shape before you apply the more detailed tools (it’s the widest one). K9/10 is a more curved one so it’ll allow you to do deeper cuts in your project and add some deep wide lines to it. The v-profile chisel is for creating fine thin lines and getting rid of waste wood in some narrow spaces where other tools won’t reach.
Carving chisels and gouges as a multipurpose tool
As you could see for yourself already, a wood gouge is a versatile instrument that expands your possibilities with wood quite significantly. That’s why we strongly recommend you to get a gouge chisel set if you have the desire to create more detailed and beautiful things!
