1/2 Bowl Gouge – with 16″ Maple Handle
Parabolic flutes give a great combination of strength and chip ejection. They are amenable to finger nail (Ellsworth or Irish) grinds, conventional bowl gouge grinds and the “40/40” grind.
This 1/2″ bowl gouge is a real work horse and a handy size for almost all bowl turning. We use the American method of gouge measurement, so the shank is 1/2″
The handle is hard rock maple and turned for us in Pennsylvania. The ferrule is stainless steel. Also available unhandled.
