Overview

This aptly named gouge sports a traditional, blunt grind profile. It excels at handling end-grain fiber, and other difficult grains. Mike uses his bottom feeder on the interior bottom of a bowl to provide a smooth finish.

    How This Tool Is Built

    We start with the sharpest edge, and we don't stop there. Vanquish vibration, say adios to constant resharpening, and let wispy shavings fly. Delivering superior performance at your lathe drives our manufacturing. 

    We’ve worked with M42 high speed steel for 4 decades, and it’s uniquely suited to woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive provides unparalleled edge holding. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

    Our carefully sourced M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang for unmatched strength. Every gouge sports a distinctive flute polish. This boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow. Learn more about M42 HSS here.

    Rigorous and detailed sums up our manufacturing. Each tool’s vibration-demolishing round tang has a diameter so precise you’ll hear a ‘pop’ when you pull it out of the handle. And every tool leaves our factory razor sharp and backed by a 100% lifetime guarantee. Built to last!

    Rest assured our aluminum handles feel as great as they look. Perfectly weighted for balance and maneuverability, and designed to fit your hand. You’ll forget the handle is even there, in the best way possible. Two set screws secure your tool into the handle and allow removal for sharpening.

    From flute polish to handle knurling, we’re not cutting corners. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been turning for decades, it’s an honor to serve you with quality tools. Learn more about our story here

    Best tool I have in my rack

    I struggled with which bowl gouge to purchase seeing how I started turning with lower quality tools and needed to upgrade. I had purchased the 1/2 in bowl gouge a year ago and it is just a little small for the reach that I was having to make. I put a 40/40 grind on it and turned about 6 green bowls with it. Over all it was incredibly easier then with my older tools. The long solid 5/8 shaft of the gouge helped cut vibration down to almost nothing. It was a true game changer for me. Along with the the rigidity of the tool the edge of the cutting tool stayed sharp enough for me to put a finish cut on all 6 of my bowls even after removing the bulk of the material. I highly recommend this tool to all turners. A bonus was when I called David actually answered and talked me through the differences and helped me make the decision.
    Thanks David and Valerie,
    John "Ross" Lane
