Product Details

These premium 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. These premium performance woodturning tools have a lifetime warranty and will be replaced free of charge if any tool fails due to a material or manufacturing defect.

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. ©

Jay Bailey

Absolutely amazing gouge!
I haven't stopped turning bowls since it arrived a few days ago.
Arrived VERY promptly after ordering late the night before it arrived the following morning.
Very sharp edge, works wonders on most woods I've tried it on, with both end grain and cross grain blanks.
Hollows out like a dream! I've definitely found my ideal bowl turning tool! After using bowl gouges when I first started out 11 years ago, this is certainly something different.
It even out does my Robert sorby carbide tools!

Chris Gould

1/2 Bowl gauge,

Arrived fast and well packaged, Fantastic pricing and very competitive with other suppliers,

Arrived sharp but did need honing on the grinder, nothing that's not expected anyway off big suppliers, Shall be putting my own grind on it over the next few days but works as expected so far.

What can I say. I have only just starting kitting myself out with Lathe turning tools etc. I saw this Bowl Gouge at a pretty good price. So I went ahead and ordered this and several other items in the weeks following my initial purchase. It goes to show that if you have a good tool it makes the job easier and it does just that. Rutlands has become my go to place to make my purchases.

Ian Beresford

Rutlands let me know when this gouge was in stock. Quick delivery. Very impressed with the gouge. Gave it a quick sharpen and tested. Cannot fault it. I just need to get my own grind profile on it. Can't wait to turn some bowls with it.

Graham Freeman

Please remember this is not a UK-sourced tool - bowl gouge dimensioning can differ between the US and the UK. Some manufacturer's specify bar size (diameter) while others specify the (maximum) width of the flute - if in doubt, check with the manfacturer / supplier.

Blade length generally relates to the blade in its unhandled form - for handled tools, do not be surprised to find the 'visible' length is 20 to 30mm shorter (because there has to be a bit of blade in the handle).

Duncan Marsh

Incorrect dimensions, blade was only 200mm not 220mm. Item returned.

Luciano Salt

I read the other reviews before deciding to buy the 1/2 inch bowl gouge and understood that I would have to re-grind the edge to get the swept back profile that I wanted.
The gouge arrived very quickly, well protected and at a great price.
I was not disappointed!
It took hours to re-grind the gouge due, I believe, to the hardness of the steel. This is not a bad thing!
I have used the chisel only once so far after the re-grind and I am very happy with the performance.
I'm tempted to get both other sizes but I need to justify this to the financial controller, (missus).
Very happy guy.

Matt Malins

Be warned, this is not a 1/2" bowl gouge. The shank is only 12mm in diameter and the flute not even 3/8". Much smaller that the description implies.
