If the original poster did not already have a grinder with a wolverine (or had a grinder but was not willing to make a shop made jig to sharpen tools) then I could see the appeal of the easy wood tool so long as they really don’t know yet whether they like turning. In the advent of either already owning a wolverine or a shop made jig, sharpening your gouge is literally a no thought, idiot proof process.

The idea of having disposable cutterheads on a chisel screams to me of a marketing ploy that will end up costing someone a lot more then normal high quality chisels if they stay with turning for any decent period of time.
