Denny gouges are handcrafted in the USA from 01 tool steel and hardened to 59R. They are very durable, economical and hold an edge very well. Each tool is pre sharpened and ready to use.
I would recommend this gouge. The cutting edge is sharp, packaging was secure and it is a good value. That said, the wood handle was not as smooth or polished as higher end brands like Drake or Pinewood Forge.
Works smoothly n sharp. Many thanks.
