M42GL5- Hamlet Glenn Lucas - 3/8” Fluted 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

  • 3.8" Bowl Gouge
  • 1/2" 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

Used for finer cuts inside and out of a bowl sharpened to a 45 degree angle.This will achieve a better finish than the ⅝” bowl gouge (GL4) but won’t reach the bottom interior of a bowl. The ½” bowl gouge picks up where this tool cannot reach.

3/8" is the flute size not the bar size
