 Product Description

All 1/2" 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.

Use the Fingernail Grind Bowl Gouge for roughing out - smaller pieces smaller gouge, larger pieces larger gouge. It is also very useful when you roll it on the side and use it as a sheer scraper. Excellent for removing small tool marks and to finesse a long curve.

  1. Fantastic tool - I found a Tormek setting that matched the grind

    Posted by David Brown on Mar 11th 2024

    I have been purchasing D-Way tools for about a year now. Every one is a gem. I have two beading tools, a bedan, thin parting tool and this 1/2 bowl gouge fingernail grind. I watched the video, but had a hard time translating the information to my grinder setup. I also have a Tormek as well as the Tormek adapter for the bench grinder. I played around with settings on the Tormek and discovered that using a Jig setting "2" and a Protrusion distance of 65mm an using "A" hole setup gave me a grind that was almost exactly what I got from D-Way tools originally.
    I'm very happy with this result as well as the wonderful quality of this tool.

  2. Best tools ever

    Posted by Gregg s Griffith on Mar 3rd 2024

    I bought the 1/2" bowl gouge and the thin parting tool as well as the long handle. I wore out my Amazon 1/2" bowl gouge in just over year. The quality of these tools is amazing, and I find they really do stay sharper longer. I plan on buying more tools from D-way in the future. Also the videos are great. I'm so glad that I saw the review on You Tube. I'm also a Washington resident so it's nice to support a local quality business.

  3. 1/2 bowl gouge.

    Posted by Paul on Mar 27th 2023

    This is my 3rd tool from d-way tools. It is the "Go to" tool for most of my turnings.

  4. Nice

    Posted by Lawrence on Mar 19th 2022

    Sharp out of the box. Would buy again.

  5. Best Gouge on the Market

    Posted by Scott F on Jan 10th 2022

    This is my second 1/2" bowl gouge from D-Way, and I've owned gouges from Thompson, Sorby, Crown, and Penn State. None work as well or stay sharp longer than my D-Way gouges. I've also purchased several other tools from them, all are superior. Forget the other guys, just buy from D-Way. Excellent service too.

  6. First REAL Bowl gouge

    Posted by Garry Bolstead on Oct 29th 2021

    My first real bowl gouge so can't compare, but it performs smoothly and stays really sharp. I also bought the 1/2" spindle gouge on the same date and I've been making mounds of shavings doing Christmas market items. What a joy to turn wood and not constantly going to the grinder to sharpen. This is one really SUPER tool. From this experience, I'll only be buying to D-Way tools to replace my other worn out tools. SUPER SERVICE and speed of shipping. Big Thanks to D-way tools for making my hobby more fun.

  7. Awesome tools.

    These are nice tools that sharpen easily , remain sharpe and feel great in your hands.
    I have several D-way tools and will continue to support D-way tools with my future purchases .

    Their customer service is outstanding , just can’t say enough about D-way tools to shed light on them as well as should be .
    Simply great tools and great service beyond the transaction.

  8. 1/2 bowl gouge

    Posted by Unknown on Sep 2nd 2021

    Shipped sharp and worked well. Edge stays sharp longer than any other HSS I’ve used before.

  9. Great gouge for finish work

    Posted by Breck Whitworth on Aug 27th 2021

    I turn hundreds of bowls per year. I use this particular type gouge as a finisher. Usually I use them on rough turned bowls after drying.

  10. Terrific Bowl Gouge

    Posted by GERRY PATTON on Apr 15th 2021

    Like all the D-Way tools I own, this one is a fine tool. Sharp out of the box and beautifully finished. Nobody ships faster than Cindy either.
