This is a fantastic gouge for spoon carving. We find it especially good for carving out the bowls on small Coffee Scoops and Spice Spoons. However it is also very handy when carving Kuksas!
The Joy of Wood is proud to be an authorised Australian Dealer of the BeaverCraft range of tools. Made by BeaverCraft in Ukraine, these gouges have high quality carbon steel blades which come with a razor sharp polished edge right out of the box, ready to use. The handle is made from Ash, with a copper ferrule around the blade end for increased strength and durability.
The total length of the tool is only 190mm, which makes it ideal to be contained in any small travelling spoon carving kit!
So what’s in the name? “Compact” (only 190mm long total); Short Bent Gouge (the gouge has a short blade with a tight bend in the second half of the blade); “Sweep #8, 14mm” (#8 refers to the number/radius of the curve in the gouge blade, and 14mm is the distance across the cutting end of the blade, from tip to tip.) It is the combination of all these properties which made the BeaverCraft K8A/14 such a versatile tool for spoon carving in particular.
