I wanted a set of carving gouges , but I couldn’t afford to spend an arm and a leg.
I was pretty surprised when these arrived and turned out to be nicer then I thought they would be.
Given the price of around $11.00 a gouge, these are nice.
They range from 1/4” to 1” and were sharp enough to use right out of the box, but I’ll hone them up real good and give a report a little down the road on how they work out.
I gave four stars based on my initial impression, but we’ll see.
Grizzly model G7957.
Thanks.

I was looking into buying those gouges also. It looks like your recommendation will push me over the edge & I’ll have to buy them. Thanks!

Hi David.
I just want to try & embellish some projects when I make them, with maybe a few accents.

very, very basic carving…lol
