I decided to make this tool because the 5/8″ was an absolute delight to turn with and I could not stop thinking how a massive 3/4″ Oval Bowl Gouge would feel. The result? A monster powerful gouge which will not shy away from the most demanding turning!
Flute shapes are precision ground using state of the art CNC Grinding Machines. Then, they are hardened and cryogenically tempered and subjected to our proprietary “Surface Compacting Technology” which enhances the surface of the steel. The process creates a “micro burr” surface which proves to be “extremely effective” on the cutting edge of the tool.
Although we’ve sharpened our tools before we ship, the initial grind is placed just to allow the woodturner to start using the tools right away. It is up to the user to determine if he/she wants to keep the same grind shape after initial use.
