    Ashley Iles Pole Lathe Shallow Roughing Gouge 1-1/2 inch

    The shallow roughing gouge, as the name suggests, is used to bring the rough blank down to a smooth even cylinder.

    The shallow gouge takes a broad light cut, it gets through material quickly and leaves a reasonably level surface - ideal for turning larger blanks.

    When used canted over this tool is also capable of producing an extremely fine finish.
  2. Japanese Hatchet


    Used for light accurate work, splitting kindling, carving etc, a good hatchet should feel nimble and precise, a really good one will also take a razor edge and hold it for a decent length of time.

    This delightfully comfortable Japanese hatchet is as close to perfect as any small axe I have ever used. The head weight is the same as a typical 16oz claw hammer, being balanced further forward it feels a little bit heavier, but that should ...

    Japanese Splitting Axe


    Japanese splitting axes have a different head shape from most Europen and American axes, splitting hammers and mauls. Evolved for the smaller oriental stature, they tend to have slightly lighter heads compensated for by longer handles, and are therefore less fatiguing to use. At the business end, the energy of the swing and the mass of the head is all focussed on a small convex ground beak at the tip of the tool that forces the wood fibres apa...

    Japanese Forest Axe


    Light enough to carry into the forest, yet capable of felling and limbing small trees up to around 9" diameter, splitting kindling or short straight grained rounds, the forest axe is a versatile general purpose tool for "if you can only take one axe with you" situations.

    Because this axe can be used for light splitting, the cheeks are important working surfaces too, so a solid steel head is used in preferance to a laminated one. The st...

    Japanese Carpenters Axe

    With its straight edge and concave cheeks, the Japanese double bevelled carpenters axe is perfectly suited for accurate work; trimming to size, cutting joints and light hewing. An essential time saving tool for timber framers, it is also an excellent choice of axe for workshop use, filling the gap between 'too much to plane but not enough to saw'. Carpenters axes are cutting tools, like chisels and planes they should always be kept sharp and ...
  6. Kanenori Japanese Nata Billhook 180mm

    the Japanese nata is serious multi-purpose green woodworking tool. Like billhooks everywhere they are produced in a bewildering variety of shapes, but these were recommended to us as being the most suitable for making things (as opposed to agricultural and horticultural uses). Like many green woodworking tools they are relatively ineffective on dry hardwoods but will sail through green ash or sycamore beautifully....

    Clifton No 650 Curved Sole Spokeshave

    Ashley Iles Pole Lathe Skew Chisel 1 inch

    There is nothing like a wonderfully sharp carbon steel skew chisel for producing a clean glossy finished surface on the wood. The tool is usually used on its side, short edge at the bottom, and cuts with the lower half of the edge. With the skew inverted, the tip can be used to carve in crisp features like lines and v grooves.

    Ashley Iles round the edges of the skew chisel so that it rides easily along the tool rest without snagging.
