Straight gouge is an excellent gouge to use in all making of bowls and dishes.
Mini gouge 20-12 have total length 11 cm och have a thin blade.
That gives a good control when you are carving spoons and small bowls.
Straight gouge 10-11 och 30-13 have total length 15 cm and these gouges are also a part of the Small wood sculpting set.
The long straight gouges have total length about 26-28 cm.
The shorter length for the narrow widths and a little longer lenght for the wider edges.
The bevel shape is expressed in a diameter (mm) and an approximate width (mm). The bevel shape is part of a full circle. The number that the gouge is marked with is the diameter of this circle. The width is measured across the gouge.
Using a gouge with a more convex bevel shape makes it easier to remove material, therefore they are perfect to start off a project with. The flatter bevel shape is better for smoother carving, therefore a better use at the end of your project. A flatter shape demands more strength, since it makes wider wood chips. It is advantageous to use many different shapes of gouges during your project.
