Medium Skew – Unhandled

Medium Skew – Unhandled

$ 79.00

Our Medium skew is made of premium HSS and measures 3/4” by 9/32″. The edge is beveled 20 degrees and has been hollow ground on an 8” diameter wheel before honing to a razor sharp edge.  The cutting edge of the gouge has been ground to a gentle 3/4” radius.  We consulted with noted turner Matt Monaco on the profile of this grind.  The radius of the profile has a small return at the top, adding versatility for cutting beads and adding details.

The lower edges of the gouge have a generous radius to help rolling the gouge to make beads and coves.  The top edges also have a small radius.  The tang is rectangular, but will fit the 5/8″ collet in either of our ER Collet based handle systems.
