    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

    Excellent gouge.

    My 3/8" bowl gouge arrived razor sharp and ready to use. It is the perfect size and weight for my wood turning. I am more than pleased with it. Very good quality.

    Beautiful tool

    I recently purchased a 3/8" bowl gouge and I love it. The steel holds a sharp edge longer than the other bowl gouges I have used. Being able to disengage it from the handle makes it easier to sharpen as well. The only drawback to this gouge is the aluminum handle. Why? I have to warm my shop up in the winter and that being the case, the handle tends to stay cold. Other than that, I highly recommend it to anyone.

    Easy handle change suggestion

    No problems using the gouge. However I suggest a stop in the end of the flute and adaptor to ease changing gouges with the handle.
