These micro-sized professional quality carving tools were designed for wood carving, but are absolutely fantastic for carving into leather-hard metal clay, baked polymer clay, rubber, and lino. Carving tools create deep, bold textures on clay, making them great for enamelling, patina, and other colour finishes to your jewellery. All carving tool handles are made from cherry wood, shaped in an ergonomic hexagon shape to give a good grip, and stop them rolling off your table!

Dockyard Carving tools aren't just ideal for carving metal clay and baked polymer clay - they can also be used to make your own personalised texture sheets, by carving into sheets made out of cured polymer clay, linoleum, or rubber.

This 5mm U-gouge (Sometimes called gouge tool) carves a 5mm wide U-shaped cut.

SAFETY NOTE: Always carve away from your hands, and keep away from children - these tools are extremely sharp!!


  • To get used to how these tools work, we suggest you start carving on scrap material.
  • Don't try to carve too deep, it's better to do several shallow cuts. Carving too deep can cause your tool to get stuck or damage the tip.
  • These are precision hand tools. Don't pry or twist into the material you're carving. Don't use them with a hammer, or excessive force.

Size: Approx 13.5cm x 1cm
