Robert Sorby 3/4" Gold Roughing Gouge

Robert Sorby

Made from hardened and tempered high speed steel and then Titanium Nitride coated for increased resistance to edge wear. Will hold an edge much longer than standard hardened steel. Also known simply as a roughing gouge. Recommended for the initial turning of uneven or square spindle stock to round. The shape of the spindle roughing gouge enables the tool to cut safely with the wings (the tips of the side walls) well back from the workpiece. Not designed for use on bowl grain projects. It comes with hard White Ash handle and brass ferrule. Long handle is 12 inches long with the tool being 7 inches in length. Overall length is 19 inches.
