All 3/8" Bowl Gouge - Fingernail Grind flutes are individually inspected and hand polished to remove all machine marks. This extra step assures the sharpest cutting edge possible. They are shipped sharp.
I use the Finger Nail Ground Bowl Gouges for all of my roughting out, smaller pieces smaller gouge, larger pieces larger gouge. It is also very usefull when you roll it on the side and used as a sheer scraper, is also excellent for removing small tool marks and finessing long curves.

I am a D-Way fan. I have several of Dave's tools and D-Way is always at the top of the list when I am thinking about buying a new tool. I use this little bowl gouge for finer work (the gouge is a lot finer than I am). All of Dave's tools come razor sharp and with plastic tip guards. They are well-packaged. The delivery service may crush/mangle the box, but the tools inside are snug and safe.

Unwrapped the tool made the mistake for running finger across it and found out that it really was delivered sharp and ready to use. You've gotta love that. Started turning with it and really didn't want to put it down. Everything from the handle to the bushing to the gouge itself was unbelievably nice to work with and it all fit together so well. Great to see that we really can get great made products in America.

Shipping and delivery was excellent and I was over impressed with the quality of the product purchased. I will be buying all of my tools from D-WAY in the future, this will be my recommendation for anyone new to the craft.
And Dave thanks for all the videos and advice.

The tools are so good that I bought almost all of them!!! I also bought the CBN grinding wheels which makes sharpening a breeze. I highly recommend any tool that you buy from Dave. Oh yea also bought the tool rests from Brian. Thanks Dave and Brian!

Picked this tool up based on 1/2" gouge purchase. Just like big brother this tool is a dream to work with. Holds edge and handles effortlessly. Again, like my prior purchase this gouge is now a 1st. line tool for me. Like it to the point that I intend to complete the D-way bowl gouge lineup.

I was a little scared of this tool at first, but getting the hang of it, and it is awesome. I'm no expert turner, but I can appreciate quality tools, and just holding this thing gives me confidence - as does watching Dave's videos. Heck even the promo text, specifically about using the bottom feeder bowl gouges for exterior finishing cuts. I tried it, and am now back here to replace my old stub-nose bowl gouge. I expect I'll be replacing most of my gouges etc with D-Way tools - Dave, thank you!
