ASHLEY ILES 3ZG Zoe Gertner Straight Gouge - 1/4 inch
A 1/4 inch wide No.3ZG straight carving gouge by ASHLEY ILES.
The tools in the ASHLEY ILES Zoe Gertner range are shorter and thinner than their standard range making them lighter and easier to handle for some woodcarvers.
The ASHLEY ILES trade mark and sweep number has worn off the blade but this gouge is a good match to the sweep number 3ZG.
A few surface staining spots, please see images.
Good beechwood handle with brass ferrule, hairline crack to one side but firm and secure. Four identification gouge cuts to the top, please see close-up image.
85/8 inches overall length.
