 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.

I use the Finger Nail Ground Bowl Gouges for all of my roughing 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 finess long curve.

  1. Best of the Best

    Posted by Johnny Singer on May 24th 2020

    My go to tool. I turn bowls for cancer charity and this tool really helps the cause.. By far best gouge I own.

  2. More that expected.

    Posted by Byrle Brunton on Apr 20th 2020

    I was accustomed to using a very large bowl gouge in a very large handle.
    This has provided the utility and the performance that I was lacking. As with all D-Way and Boxmaster tools and accessories, it's an over achiever.

  3. Incredible tool

    Posted by Matt Burke on Apr 5th 2020

    This is a beautifully finished tool and incredibly sharp. I’m just learning how to use the tool, shear scraping is a dream and leaves a very smooth surface.

  4. Nice tool

    Posted by ED Jenks on Feb 10th 2020

    I'm a rookie at turning but am enjoying my new D-Way gouges. I especially like that I can make my own handles that fit my big hands.

  5. Excellent product

    Posted by dave on Nov 1st 2019

    Bought the handle and tool and they work together well, nice feel, well balanced. The cutting and scraping function is excellent, working with punky wood and getting clean cuts with little pull out.

  6. Polished Flutes

    Posted by Guy Mueller on Oct 15th 2019

    Holds a sharp edge.

  7. Simply better gouges!

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 14th 2019

    Dave's gouges are simply better than others that I have used. The steel seems to both take an hold a cleaner edge that other steel and they feel "soft". Dave tells me it it because they are tumble polished.

    If you are just starting out or replacing an existing gouge you will not go wrong with a D-Way tool,

  8. 1/2" bowl gouge

    Posted by Unknown on Mar 7th 2019

    As I have not used the other tool steel types I cannot say the M42 is the best but it will be very hard to beat it. Tool was sharp when it arrived just as advertised and cut better than my other bowl gouge by far. Kept its edge longer than other gouge , easy to sharpen. If I need another lathe tool the M42 steel is what I will get.

  9. quality product

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 17th 2019

    1/2 inch bowl gouge another outstanding product. This is my 5th D-Way turning tool and I am as pleased with it as the first one. The polish and finish and attention to detail in the making of this product is readily seen and felt as soon as you pick it up and use it. My goal is to have nothing but D-Way Tools in my shop

  10. 1/2 In. bowl gouge

    Posted by Glenn Griswold on Nov 23rd 2018

    I have tried several other bowl gouges but I keep coming back to D-Way tools. Glenn
