This is a traditional English tool that dates from the days of hand production turning. It has a heavy section but a fairly shallow gouge, so it is great for both roughing and shaping between centers. It's very appropriate for large turnings such as staircase balustrades. It's an extremely versatile and good value tool. The standard grind is 40 degrees but for soft wood, you might consider going to 25 degrees which will enable a very fine cut.

Except where noted all tools are made of high speed steel (HSS) and are sold handled. Tony Iles hand finishes each and every turning tool himself and is proud that every tool is shipped with its surfaces ground and edges broken. These are tools that will feel wonderful in the hand, with a heft makes them feel very solid - a real aid in turning. All the tools are shipped sharp and ready to use, although we fully expect many of you to customize the grinds to your particular working methods.
