This 1/2" bowl gouge features a medium grind, with wing tips that have been ground back so the tool does not "catch" on the work piece. The "fingernail" grind is a popular edge with woodturners because it is easy to use and control and extremely versatile. Pull and push cuts, delicate shearing cuts, or full profile cuts can be made with ease. The medium grind lends itself to easy modification, allowing you to create profiles specifically suited to your turning requirements. Overall length 16-1/2".
