Called a "Skewchigouge" by the maker, this combination skew chisel and gouge turning tool works equally well with hard or soft woods.
The tip is used as a skew chisel, the sides as a shallow gouge. A combination of the two cutting profiles is used to quickly form beads, coves, shoulders, grooves, etc. A great tool for spindle work.
The blade is high-speed steel hardened to Rc62-64. Measures about 15 1/2" long overall with an 8 1/2" beech handle. Instructions included.
Made in England by Crown.
