"I love the 'heft'of the tool, handle and
It makes for a very steady tool on the rest and
against the work.
I had some trouble getting the profile I wanted
on the Ultimate gouge. I did an asymmetric grind,
left side more profiled for more aggressive back
cutting or roughing and right side less so for
finish cuts. It took me a bit to get it right,
my fault, but I love it now. I do find the steel
on the Ultimate Gouge holds an edge longer than
my other tools and I can get it very, very sharp.
The Serious Camlock Handle works very well. I
find it comfortable to the hand and it works well
with your gouge.
Overall I am very pleased with what you have provided
so far and I look forward to the heavier gouge

Since 1998, Serious Toolworks (formerly
Serious Lathe Co.) has been producing tools using significantly
superior materials and designs:
All Serious standard bowl and spindle gouges are machined from
M2 high speed steel. M2 remains the most widely used steel for
woodturning worldwide. Our M2 gouges are heat treated in a vacuum
furnace at 2150 degrees F, delivering tools with a HRC of 62 to
M2 also offers tool flexibility to resist chipping and shattering
from high speed catches, and abrasion resistance needed to turn
hardwoods at high speeds.
Serious Scrapers are produced from A2 tool steel, heat-treated
to 1750 degrees F, delivering tools with a HRC of 61 to 62.
The Serious scraper/handle system is the only one of its kind
on the market today.
Serious Scrapers offer 9" -- not the traditional 5-7 inches
-- of working tool length.
Serious bowl gouges are 16" long and up to 1" in diameter.
Serious gouges 3/4" and smaller feature tip-to-tip fluting.
All Serious gouges are 16" long and provide a minimum of
10" (& 13" maximum) of useable fluted tool length,
far more than the standard 5" to 7".
