 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. Polished Flutes

    Posted by Guy Mueller on Oct 15th 2019

    Holds a sharp edge.

  2. 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,

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  5. 1/2 In. bowl gouge

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

  6. Sharpe and ready to go to work

    Posted by Woody on Jun 22nd 2018

    Great shipping and packing. I'm buying this gouge to be used in a turning workshop the requires a different grind, so I purchased additional D-Way tools for the class. This way I can leave the gouge as grounded for the class instead of regrinding existing gouges. That saves me tool steel in the long run if I decide to keep the new grind.

  7. The best

    Posted by TL Goss on Apr 13th 2018

    It didnt take long to realize i had made less trips to the grinder, the steel holds an edge longer. I ordered the 16" handle and realy like the weight and balance. Without a doubt the best qualit tool i have in the shop.

  8. Best gouge available

    Posted by Jim McLain on Nov 10th 2017

    I have used several manufacturers 1/2 bowl gouges including Thompson, Oneway,Sorby and others and the d-way gouge is my favorite. It is ground with the best profile and the m42 holds an edge very well.

  9. Simply the Best

    Posted by Pat Miller on Oct 22nd 2017

    Dave's design, the M42 steel and the smooth, polished flutes produce a gouge that that is unsurpassed in clean, long lasting cutting. Whether it's a set of bowls or an intricate art piece D-Way tools always produce. No better tool at any price.

  10. Best you can buy.

    Posted by Steve Lazarus on Jul 16th 2017

    D-WAY (Dave Schweitzer) sells the best woodturning tools on the market. If you enjoy wasting your time, search the world for a better tool.
