It uses a square carbide cutter with a slightly curved edge (4" radius) that never needs sharpening. Just rotate it to a new edge when it becomes dull and replace it when needed.
The Easy Rougher Tool is used flat on the tool rest in a horizontal position directing the force of cutting down to the toolrest, reducing strain for the user. The shank of the tool is made of 1/2" square stainless steel that measures 8-3/8" and comes fitted with a 16" handle. Available unhandled Available as an option are a Square Cutter for roughing when a square corner is needed and a Curved Cutter with a 2" radius for roughing the inside of bowls less than 8" diameter.
