Testimonials

"Just received my latest classical guitar kit. I had a couple of requests for wood selection, and you did a great job in selecting on both counts,
In addition, all the wood was great quality - this was an expensive kit, but your product made it a very good value to me.

Thanks for the great work!"

Gouge for Carving Heel

CHISELSGougeHeelGCS25at400

 

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.
