Looking to upgrade my Benjamin's Best bowl gouge. Right now so far I have a couple in mind. The Ellsworth ProPM bowl gouge by Crown or the Oneway Double Ended Mastercut 1/2" gouge. The Oneway I could have the conventional grind on one end and the Ellsworth grind on the other or I could use the Ellsworth grind on both ends. As they told me I would only have to go to the grinder 1/2 as often. It is made of M4 HSS which is suppose to last 3X longer before grinding. One gentleman told me you can have all of his gouges but his Oneway double ended spindle gouge and his double ended bowl gouge. He told me he could turn a 10" X 4" deep black locust (HARD) bowl and not go to the grinder. That has me pretty impressed. The other tools are the Kryo tools that they say will last 6X longer. Any opinions on any of the above?? Thanks.
