Archetier’s Gouge


When changing the hair on a bow, it really helps to add a small relief cut to the underside of the plugs that insert into the frog and tip. This tool is meant specifically for that task.

If you have a special piece of wood you’d like me to make something out of, or if you’d like the handle to be a different shape, just send me a message and we will work something out.

  • Meant for cutting a small trough on the underside of the plugs when rehairing violin bow.
  • Overall length is right around 5.5”
  • Handles are roughly 3” long, 1.5” in diameter at their widest point.
  • High carbon steel bit extends 2.5″
  • Ground flat on 1 side to prevent rolling.
  • Polished copper ferrule
