Numbering - Ordering carving tools can be confusing so here's an explanation of the numbering system for the Two Cherries range of full size professional tools.
They all have a seven digit number (xxx-xxxx).
The first three digits for all Two Cherries professional carving tools is 505 (505-xxxx).
The next two digits indicate the 'Sweep' of the tool (505-08xx).
The last two digits indicate the width of the cutting edge (505-0812).
So the number (505-0812) indicates a professional Two Cherries #8 sweep straight gouge with a cutting edge of 12mm.
Note that the sweep illustrations are not to scale.
Handles - All tools come standard with a fine quality octagon handle. All tools of 25mm or larger have double-hooped handles for added strength
