Many people start out with the hf tools.
They used to have a set with red handles, but not on their web page anymore. That was my first set. They are high speed steel, and a set is less money than a name brand single tool. This is a SPINDLE set, no bowl gouge. The theory is to make your sharpening mistakes on less expensive tools.
As a beginner, I think something like Easy Wood Tools, is a better option. There is one presentation for all the tools, no sharpening. Much safer and quicker to learn and get some success, then get into the others as you need them.
