1/2 Detail / Spindle Gouge – with 16″ Maple Handle
The strong 1/2″ spindle/detail gouge has a flute with shallow radius. Shipped with a 45 degree grind, many turners sharpen these types of gouges to a sharper angle, and sometime add a secondary bevel.
Many turners who are primarily bowl turners find these much friendlier for spindle turning than using a skew. The handle is hard maple with a stainless steel ferrule.
