This Wood Turning 3/8" Beading Tools is used with the flute down and that lets it to be used in a shear cutting way. Sizes are bead size. Can be used on faceplate or spindle work.
I recommed the 8" handle for all of my beading tools and Diamond tool, light touch is all that is needed, longer handles interfere with the bed of lathe.

As someone awkward by nature, I have found my assortment of D-way beading tools a God-send. They cut easily, cleanly, and well. They don't always require the 8" handle, but it is helpful. They eliminate the need for precision with the skew (yea!). They do not come with sharpening instructions, but so far I've been able to touch up the edge by lightly stroking the angled top of the cutter with a diamond hone. Tighter grained woods produce the better results.
