Testimonials

"I’m about 10 tops into a stack of 40 cedar tops I got from you, and whenever I want to start a new guitar, I just walk over and pick a top off the stack, and start building.
They are all that great! I don’t have to dink around with the pattern, or select the “best" one: I just start building. I love that!  I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your high standards, and what a pleasure it is to do business with you!"

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.
