This beefy-looking v-gouge was designed by CCA member, Peter Ortel. The large 5/8" size allows Pete to use the wings as a knife edge when needed. Pete uses this tool extensively in his caricature carving.
Mike Shipley, the Ozark County Carver and maker of OCCT, uniquely crafts these "V-Gouges." The reason why these tools are called "V-Gouges" is because where the wings of the V meet, it is shaped like a small gouge instead of a sharp V.
