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. ©

Adrian Furlong

Ordered one of these 3/8 bowl gouges, next day delivery which was good. Its a nice tool, does the job at a reasonable price. I can't fault it.

Ron Morrison

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.

Matt Malins

Be warned. This is not a 3/8" gouge. It is closer to a 1/4". Also the grind on the gouge is incorrect, you will get a fingernail grind not a normal grind, the description is very wrong.

Ben Woodcraft

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.
