FULL DESCRIPTION
These turning tools are made from M2 high-speed steel which has been cryogenically hardened, to ensure an extremely long service life. Cryogenic hardening is a technical process, where the steel is cooled down to -185°C after hardening, resulting in an edge that will last up to 5 times longer than conventionally hardened high-speed steel. This process makes the tools ideal for turning oily abrasive woods, exotic woods, green and hard woods, allowing the turner to turn wood rather than spend time re-sharpening the blade. The blades have a super fine cutting edge with reduced burr formation, which results in a clean, smooth finish and a superior feel in use. The blades are remarkably fast and easy to sharpen, as they allow you to remove less material than before to produce a perfect razor sharp edge. The blades are hardened to HRC63-65 and are ready to use, having been bevelled, sharpened and polished.

The full-size handles are ergonomically designed to allow for optimum grip and comfort and are made from a slow growing beech that has been selected for its straight grain, to ensure maximum strength. The shanks of the high-speed steel blades are buried deep into the beech handles and secured by a solid stainless steel ferrule.

With their straighter profile and deeper flute, bowl gouges are well suited to rapid stock removal and the hollowing out of open, shallow vessels. The semi-circular back allows for the tool to be rolled from one edge to the other though the cut ensuring a clean finish. These are excellent full-size woodturning tools. ©

Ordered the 3/8 cryo bowl gouge and really pleased with tool and delivery. Only been using it for a few days but it's still holding it's edge so haven't needed to sharpen yet. Really want a 1/2 inch one to go with it now.

I also ordered the 3/8inch gouge expecting this to be the flute dimension and was disappointed to receive a much smaller gouge. Rutland should show their sizing method on the website. Having said that, the tool does appear to be good value for money.

This is a good quality gouge that is well balanced and a good size. I was concerned about the length being a 100mm shorter than my Hamlet gouges but when I started using it this was not an issue. For the price I don't think it can be beaten! It does not meet the quality of my Hamlet gouges but they are more than twice the price. This gouge gave a decent cut and finish and came with a swept back grind not the one in the pictures. This was great for me as it saved me time in changing it. The only down side is that I ordered the 3/8 gouge thinking that this would be the flute size (the British measurement) but it turned out to be the shaft size. This didn't matter too much being a size that I didn't have so I decided to keep it.
