Product Information:

Whether you are a professional production turner or a hobbyist with limited shop time, these cryogenically treated tools stay sharp two to three times longer than standard M-2 high-speed steel tools so you are turning more and sharpening less! Manufactured in Sheffield exclusively for Woodcraft, these cryogenically treated turning tools offer many of the characteristics of powdered metal tools without the cost of powdered metal tools. The cryogenic treatment process uses sub-zero temperatures, down to -300 degrees F, to modify the micro-structure of the steel into a more uniform grain structure that allows you to hone to a fine edge without chipping. Also, your cutting edge is more durable and more resistant to wear. Each tool is mounted in a European ash handle. Overall tool lengths range from 17" to 23".


  • Sub-zero cryogenically treated blade
  • Manufactured in Sheffield, England
  • European ash handle
  • Woodcraft exclusive design
  • Overall tool length 17" to 23"

    Comments about Pinnacle Cryogenic Fingernail Bowl Gouge 3/8" :

    This is my second cryo bowl gouge, and I was not disapointed. The quality is excellent. One thing to be aware of, is that these gouges are long. This is not a bad thing, but I was surprised and they can sometimes get in the way when working on a midi lathe.

    Comments about Pinnacle Cryogenic Fingernail Bowl Gouge 3/8" :

    This bowl gouge works amazingly well. I never had a great set of turning tools, so I can't compare it to other high-end ones, but I can't imagine they could get any better than this! This gouge is a simple tool to use, and stays extremely sharp. I have tried it on several maple spindles I needed to turn, (yeah, I know it's supposed to be used for bowls) and it cut very cleanly and quickly. This tool is definatly worth the cost.

    The tool is very well balanced making it a joy to use. The cutting edge holds up very well in a variety of woods. The glue in my segmented rings does not seem to dull it any quicker either. Great tool, will buy more.
