a good tool handle
the side handle is needed for better control when using for hollowing.
The handle adds stability and is good for roughing material. I found it good when using in deeper bowls to add too control. Can tend to be bulky for more detail work but I am glad I purchased it. I use this often
It is the way to go
As carbide wood turning tools are becoming popular these days a combination of hss gauges and carbide tools is the way to do turning. Sorby and other quality tool makers are offering turning tools to fit these flexible handles. With the flexibility to vary the length of the tool the comfort and possibilites are better
Nice weight and control given its 22" length. Glad I got it.
Great New Tool
These new tools by Sorby are very nice. Best handles I have seen on the market. Brass tips on the screws are an example of the quality and innovation. Tools do not get marked by the screw and then hard to handle. The feel is also very comfortable. I have both the 16" and 22" and am cutting the wooden handles off all my old tools!
