Many Luthiers (perhaps yourself?), grind these tools out of old files or other reclaimed steels out of necessity. While this can work in a pinch, those reclaimed steels do not have the optimum performance that a professional needs. With field tests and input from violin makers, I forged this popular yet hard to find tool to try to fill the void in the market and offer a professional grade version of this gouge with high grade steel heat treated for best performance at the bench.
