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.

The edge retention is as good as advertised and these tools stay very sharp much longer than the other tools in my shop.

This is my 2nd D-Way half inch gouge. I love the metal as it seems dense & stays sharp. It really holds an edge after other steels seem to lose theirs. I use this gouge for nearly every cut I need to make - pull, push, shear, and scrape. It is my "go-to" gouge!

This has become my go-to bowl gouge! It holds a sharp edge and yields predictable cuts. A very quality product that I would highly recommend.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
