Turning hook for the pole lathe - tip down.

Made from Spring steel (EN47) these tools will come sharp and ready to use.

Yoav makes these hooks with a single internal bevel and they all have a slight hollow on the outside which makes for easier sharpening.

They are made based on his experience of turning and forging his own hooks for the last 7 years and made to the same standard as his own tools.

Generally, bowl turning will require a set of a tip up and tip down hook. These tools can be used for most types of forms, and once mastered will surprise with their versatile cuts and possibilities. This also includes shaping the outside of end grain vessels.

These tools come sharp and ready to use, because of the tiny cutting edge and the very long "mileage" they do, they will need CONTINUOS sharpening and edge maintenance to keep them cutting nicely. Yoav recommends sharpening every 10-20 minutes of working!

A bad catch or dropping/knocking them on hard surfaces will likely cause damage or even break the tip. Be careful, and keep them in a sheath and sharp!

Shipped without a handle.
