    Posted by Unknown on May 28th 2016

    Right out of the package these tools deliver. Razor sharp excellent balance and perfect shape for great cuts. I only wish I could afford the entire set.
    Thank you for a truly Great product still made in the USA.


  2. Love it!

    Posted by Clark on May 1st 2016

    If you have ever even thought about a 5/8 bowl gouge before, it's time to stop thinking and start buying. This has been my "go to" gouge. You will like this one for sure.

  3. A Gouging Gouge

    Posted by Bill on Apr 24th 2016

    There is nothing quite like staring down a blank of tough Texas Mesquite wood,armed with Dave's 5/8 finger nail grind bowl gouge, the bark falls off the wood, and the gouge makes a task like this pure joy! You know you have a tool in your hand, and sharpening is just dressing the bevel.

  5. Favorite Gouges, by far!

    Posted by Unknown on Feb 27th 2016

    Far and away the best gouges I've used.
    They take and keep a very good edge.

  6. Great 5/8 Bowl Gouge

    Posted by Walter on Feb 9th 2016

    This is the 2nd tool I've bought from Dave.
    The first was the 3/4 skew what a great tool.
    The 5/8 Bowl came in 2 days.
    I got it without the handle,like to make my own.
    It was sharp as a razor.
    Cuts like cutting butter.
    A real quality tool.
    I don't know much about different steels but this tool and the others
    hold an edge for a long time.
    When it's time to sharpen you can check out the video.
    I'll be buying other tools from Dave.
    Glad Captain Eddie turned me on to these tools.

  7. Great Turning Starts Here

    Posted by Mark Entzminger on Dec 14th 2015

    I've use many gouges and this one is the best at holding an edge, ejecting chips from the flute, and shows little deflection under load 5-6" beyond the tool rest. If you are looking to improve you turning this is one tool that can help you become better. If you have a question just call Dave - he normally answers the phone. I've got seven of these on the bench ready to go. I also have others getting dusty because they are simply do not get as sharp as this gouge. Done. Buy one. Turn. Be happy.

  8. This is a GREAT tool. The tool I alway go to when I turn

    Posted by Woody Cox on Dec 7th 2015

    When I first started turning my instructor said the only gouge to purchase was a D-Way fingernail bowl gouge. I have since bought another 5/8" fingernail gouge and some other gouges. This gouge works well and stays sharp. Dave's videos also help with sharpening.

  9. 5/8" Fingernail Bowl Gouge - WOW!

    Posted by Lloyd Sullivan on Nov 11th 2015

    This gouge is my first D-Way tool. I have turning tools from several different manufacturers and after having used it, I must say that it certainly stands out in the crowd. I will be slowly replacing all my turning tools. Good Job Dave.
