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. ©

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.
