This was an experiment to see how my very cheap Woodpecker brand, Chinese gouges would hold up when carving a 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ black cherry block.  And while I did have to hone the 1/8″ U gouge once, the small V tool that I used for all the detail in the block was still sharp enough to carve easily when all the line work was completed.  And while I am not a fan of the pencil shape of the handles to this set of tools, the tools did get the job done.
