This 25mm (1") Roughing Gouge helps you remove large quantities of stock to get your workpiece to a round workable shape. The large 1” flute on this roughing gouge enables you to work with large pieces that can otherwise be difficult with a smaller roughing gouge. It will also work on smaller projects as well. Made from high speed steal and then properly hardened and tempered. It will keep a sharpened edge about six times longer than carbon steel and resist "blued" softening from overheating during grinding or from heavy turning. Come with beautifully finished Ash handle and brass ferrule. Long length handle is 300mm long with tool being 170mm in length. Overall length is 470mm.
Roughing Gouges are specifically designed to be use as a roughing tool. Roughing Gouges are NOT designed to cut cross grain or inside bowls as it is likely to catch and cause damage to the tool or cause personal injury
