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. 

What makes a 5-star bottom feeder?

  • 5/8” parabolic bowl gouge 
  • Shipped sharp with the grind found at Mahoney’s lathe (easily duplicated using a Wolverine jig) 
  • Double bevel reduces catches and unwanted marks on the cutting surface
  • Superior M42 high speed steel with a 10% cobalt content, for unparalleled edge holding 
  • M42 HSS' unique durability and razor edge mean less grinding and cleaner cuts
  • Unmatched flute polish boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow
  • Put comfort and control first with an interchangeable aluminum handle
  • Handcrafted in the USA, and backed by a lifetime guarantee and hassle-free returns

The Specs

  • Parabolic flute, traditional grind at 50º
  • Blade measures 5/8” outside diameter x 13” overall

  • 16” or 20" x 3/4” handle & 5/8” adapter

    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

    Bottom feeder likes and dislikes

    Like the weight steel holds edge well. Don't like the top corners. Will be grinding them round. Hope then will no longer have a dislike. Because as is corner are catch magnets.

    Mahoney bottom feeder

    Wow what a tool. I’m new to bowl turning and was having trouble getting a good finish on the lower 3rd of my bowls. This tool takes care of that issue. The tool quality is outstanding and when they say the tool is ready to use out of the box they are not kidding, I never used such a sharp tool. Looking forward to adding additional Carter and Son and the Mahoney tool in the future.

    Awesome gouge

    This was my first Carter and Son tool purchase... I have since placed two additional orders. Just a fantastic tool that is really well made and a pleasure to use. If you are in a cold weather state I recommend also ordering the wrap if your turning in a low or non heated shop. I’m in Chicago and obviously it’s cold through the winter so having something around the handle is helpful. Thank you so much for the great craftsmanship and the outstanding Customer Service!
