Kreegan, like the Bedan, my first choice for cutting small beads. Can also use a Bedan as a skew chisel. Most people use them as a sizing tool. I use a diamond card to sharpen my tool. No, am not as competent with a Bedan as Jean Francois Escoulen.

I have wasted a lot of wood practicing with my Bedan. Not sure it replaces my skews, or spindle gouges yet. Bought many years ago not sure would buy another Sorby at today’s price. Packard Woodworks house brand is only $41 not including shipping.

If were buying one today might look at one made by Benjamin’s Best

Bench chisel used as a Bedan. I am not this good!
