Early Spoon Carving Gouge marked J HAY
An interesting 5/16 inch or 8mm spoon carving gouge.
Marked 'J HAY' where the maker's mark is normally found but we can find no information on this maker.
Early features with bevelled corners to the tang and clear file marks.
No sweep number however this gouge is a good match to a London pattern No.28 sweep.
Lovely octagonal hardwood handle, previous owner's stamp 'A.PATERSON'.
73/4 inches (197mm) overall length.
