M42GL4- Hamlet Glenn Lucas - 1/2” Bowl Gouge



M42 Stay Sharp tools made by Hamlet to Glenns sharpening specifications set a new standard for quality and performance in woodturning tools. Unlike other types of high speed/PM tool steel that sacrifice extreme edge retention for the ability to be honed to a keen edge, or vice versa, M42 Stay Sharp tools provide both for optimum performance you can count on. Made in England

  • 1/2" Bowl Gouge
  • 5/8" Bar
  • 16" Handle 
  • M42 ‘super steel’ for optimum edge holding ability
  • Can be honed to a razor sharp edge
  • Double bevel grind for faster, cleaner cuts
  • Supplied with hand-polished Ash handle
  • Sharp, ready to use out of the box

This gouge is profiled with a parabolic flute which is the only flute profile you will find on any of my bowl gouges. Far easier to sharpen than the V or U shaped gouges on the market. This gouge will bring a bowl blank quickly to shape. It is sharpened to a 55 degree bevel angle.

1/2" is the flute size not the bar size
