Just wanted to say that the quality of all the products LMI has sent me is awesome!
I was shocked at the outstanding quality of the wood sent with my kit. All the wood in my kit is stunning! I can't wait to work on this project. The quality of the services is top notch and the tools I bought from LMI are top grade.
I am glad LMI sets a high standard in quality all around. I look forward to this project and many more knowing that a place like LMI exists with these standards.
I work in a manufacturing environment so I know the work it takes to keep such a high standard. I know LMI couldn't do it without having good people doing the daily grind. Please let your co-workers and shop staff know that I said thanks for the work they do.
I hope LMI continues this tradition of high quality, it can be hard to find a place that values a high standard.
With a number 5 sweep, and a 1" blade, this is a tool that Mario Passos from Rio de Janeiro insisted that we reintroduce. Mario said that for him it cut the task of carving the heel in half. Made of the same excellent high-carbon, hand-forged steel as in our fine chisel, this gouge takes and holds an edge like no other. A hardness of 62-63C Rockwell usually means brittleness. But with these blades toughness is built in. Mounted with our large, comfortable "Rosewood-like" handle, the gouge can be gripped with both hands for really leaning into the work.
