No.2 1/2CP Chris Pye Finishing Gouge by ASHLEY ILES - 1/2 inch
A little used 1/2 inch (12mm) Chris Pye finishing carving gouge by ASHLEY ILES.
ASHLEY ILES say:
"Developed by Chris Pye and Ashley Iles. This range of tools from Chris Pye is thinner, and also has an internal, shorter, bevel. The inner bevel allows these tools to be used 'upside' down. After the heavy modelling work these tools are used for finsihing off to a delicately facetted surface. They are to be used by hand or, only very lightly with a mallet."
Marked 'ASHLEY ILES LTD MADE IN ENGLAND' on the top of the blade with 'CHRIS PYE 21/2' on the back.
Excellent beechwood handle with brass ferrule and trade label.
