Product Information:

Powder metallurgy is not new to turning tools, but until now the available tools were expensive. Crown has succeeded in developing powdered metal tools that provide all the same benefits, but at a reasonable price. The advantage of these super-grade steels is that a tool retains its edge longer, a direct result of the steel being harder and tougher. Even the softest wood has an abrading effect on the cutting edge of a tool. The harder the steel, the better it resists this abrading and the longer they stay sharp. Even more important, they are at their prime in terms of cutting efficiency for far longer than their high-speed steel counterparts. Remember, all tools can be made equally sharp, it is the retention of a productive cutting edge that is the important factor. These tools will keep their edge for up to three times that of M2 high speed steel. What does all this really mean? Less sharpening, more turning, better cuts for a longer time! European ash handles. Honing required before use.

    Comments about Crown Pro-PM Bowl Gouge 1" :

    I'll need a lot more time to give this big gouge a thorough workout and assessment. However, my initial impressions are that it is well finished, is made from quality powdered steel that holds its edge longer than M2 HSS, and has a suitable amount of steel (weight) in the blade for its size. The flute is more open than many 'V' flutes. This makes it more suited for rough turning large bowls, which is what I primarily purchased this gouge for. One thing I don't like about the gouge is its handle... IMO it's too short for a gouge of this size (I like the handles to be twice the length of the new blade) and too fat for my hands (I have a 8" span). Otherwise I think I'm going to like this gouge. More time and use will tell.
