Ash handles offer firm hand control during use and brass ferrules prevent wood splitting from tool pressure. Overall lengths 17" to 21".

    This gouge does a great job of roughing bowls and rounding stock for pepper mills. It really shortens the preparation time.

    Comments about Sorby Roughing Gouge 1-1/4" :

    I use this gouge for spindle work and bowl turning. I used it right out of the box with just a bit of honing. The heavy gage steel reduces vibration. The length of the handle is just right and it holds an edge longer than any other steel gouge. I could not be more please with this gouge.
