Robust Tools


Sorry, this item is out of stock

Our medium skew is made of Premium HSS and measures 3/4” by 9/32″. The edge is beveled 20 degrees and has been hollow ground on an 8” diameter wheel before honing to a razor sharp edge.  The cutting edge of the gouge has been ground to a gentle 3/4” radius.  We consulted with noted turner Matt Monaco on the profile of this grind.  The radius of the profile has a small return at the top, adding versatility for cutting beads and adding details.

The lower edges of the gouge have a generous radius to help rolling the gouge to make beads and coves.  The top edges also have a small radius.  The premium 12″ hard maple handle has a durable polyurethane finish and stainless steel ferrule.
