Here are a couple of my carving gouges for sale. Since I bought these tools, my carving style has changed and so they’ve been collecting dust for years. They’re too good for a life of shelf-sitting.
The top gouge I bought early on in my carving career when I was carving a lot of bowls. I haven’t carved a bowl in 6 years or more which is the last time this tool saw use. It’s a 3/4″ wide #5 long-bent gouge made by Henry Taylor. It’s razor sharp with a small inside bevel.
The bottom gouge is a spoon bent gouge, 1/2″ wide, #7 sweep, with a nice fish-tail shape (meaning it gets wider towards the business end of the tool. It’s also made by Henry Taylor. It’s razor sharp, but doesn’t have the inside bevel. I bought it when I was carving spoons, which I haven’t done in years, so I think someone else should enjoy it.
These tools sell for $35 each (approximate) in Lee Valley Tools. I’m offering them for each $20, which is a very good deal. Henry Taylor gouges do not come sharpened when new. These are very, very sharp. I have added some (easily removed) waxed sail cord whip-finished around the shafts to soften the corners when you grip the shaft with your hand. I add this feature to most of my carving gouges as I find them much easier to use for longer periods of time this way.
If you want one or both of these tools, contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
