Available from Nic Westermann, these bowl carving gouges come in a variety of sizes. The first features a 50mm diameter sweep and the relatively small radius of this blade makes the cut quite aggressive, but a smooth finish is still achievable on smaller bowls and Kusksa. Alternatively, a scalloped finish can be left to good effect.

The other woodcarving bowl gouge features a 100mm diameter sweep and the flatter radius of this blade makes for a smoother finish on larger bowls. These gouges are not designed to be struck. Both supplied with a forged, tapered ferrule. The final size is at 65mm, again, not designed to be struck and supplied with a forged, tapered ferrule.
