ASHLEY ILES Zoe Gertner Straight Gouge - 1/4 inch 5ZG
A 1/4 inch wide No.5ZG 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.
Marked 'ASHLEY ILES LTD MADE IN ENGLAND' on the blade.
The sweep number has worn off the blade but this gouge is a good match to the sweep number 5ZG.
A few surface staining spots, please see images.
Excellent beechwood handle with brass ferrule, three identification gouge cuts to the top, please see close-up image.
81/4 inches overall length.
