Very good
Went from five dollar garbage garage sale chisels to these amazing chisels that I picked up from rockler, they are sharp out of the box and they really hold their edge, and they are precise and leave you with a good finished project
A lamp post that I made with  The chisels
A laminated  cross cut laminated bowl that I turned with my lathe and sorbys
A pen that I turned with a sorby chisel

Sorby spindle gouge
I bought the chisel for my wife, who turns pens. She has three of them so she doesn't have to stop doing her turning while I sharpen her chisel. She has used Sorby chisels from the start and really loves them. I find them great to sharpen and they hold an edge really well.

I'm new to turning. Can I use this to make a bowl? Also, how do you recommend sharpening these? I am getting a tormek soon, but don't have the money for everything right now.
Nick C on Apr 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would not use this for bowls. A bowl gouge is for turning bowls so look at those first. As for sharpening, I would look into a slow speed grinder over the torment system, I have both and found for turning tools he slow speed grinder is better. If you can afford it, get a sharpening jig like the oneway Wolverine system. Not necessarily needed but will help being new for consistent angles. Most of all do a lot of research for sharpening tools, you tube has a lot to get started and see what works for you.

I added a bowl gouge to consider. Larger is easier to use but won’t be great for really small bowls unless you grind the heel off to get the inside radius,or bottom.

Good luck and have fun. Once you start you won’t be able to stop!
