The Robust Large Skew is made from Hardened and Nitrided M2 tool steel and measures 1” across and 5/16 thick. The solid maple handle is 16” long and features a stainless steel ferrule and polyurethane finish. The lower edges of the gouge have a generous radius to help rolling the gouge to make beads and coves.  The top edges also have a small radius.

The edge is beveled 20 degrees and has been hollow ground on an 8” diameter wheel before honing to a razor sharp edge.  The cutting edge of the gouge has been ground to a gentle 2” radius.  We consulted with noted turner Matt Monaco on the profile of this grind.  The 2″ radius of the profile has a small return at the top, adding versatility for cutting beads and adding details.
