This 3/8" spindle gouge features a medium grind, with wing tips that have been ground back so the tool does not "catch" on the work piece. The "fingernail" grind is a popular edge with woodturners...
- High speed steel resists "blued" softening from overheating
- Sharpened edge lasts 6 times longer than carbon steel
- Fingernail medium grind
- Overall length 16-1/2"
- Ash handle
fingernail bowl gouge
excellent tool I have been using a set of hss tools and some carbide tools for turning this gouge is easier to use and cuts faster and smoother than I expected. I use it on a small grizzy lathe and it works very well
