Each double end spindle gouge has two grinds. One end is fingernail grind. And the other end is traditional straight grind, making this tool a very versatile two in one tool.

It has long been understood that by subjecting metal tools to elevated temperatures and then rapidly cooling them, the properties of the metal can be altered.  This happens because the crystal structure of the metal is altered to change the way the metal reacts when in use. 

The two main crystals in tooling steel are the larger and softer austenite and the smaller, more stable martensite.  Through heat treatment, we look to transform the austenite to marten site to produce steel with good wear characteristics and an amount of ductile properties. 

When combined with a good quality heat treatment, the cryogenic process greatly enhances the austenic transformation.  Also at these extreme temperature of -301F (-185C), fine ‘eta’ carbides are formed within the carbon structure.  Growing very slowly and only at these very low temperatures, ‘eta; carbides are extremely small and act as a ‘filler’ between the other crystals in the metal. 

The combined effect of the cryogenic processing is to produce a refined crystal structure in your hand tool that will give a lifetimes service by producing a blade that will retain its edge longer and give a superior ‘feel’ in use.

Spindle gouge

I'm not a expert only been turning for around 3 years. I bought the 1/2 and 3/8 spindle gouge. Not used them yet, I have used the bowl gouges which I'm impressed with not only the gouge but also the comfy handles. These are easy tools to use and don't need sharpening due to the cryo technology that has gone into making these. As much as the cheaper gouge's that you can buy online, you get 2 gauges in 1. With these gouges its a little bit of a bargain when you price up 2 gouges together. Well worth the investment. Thankyou Simon for your support and help throughout my turning.
