Are #1 fishtail gouges any different than fishtail chisels?


In my opinion any carving tool used with the bevel on the underside would be a gouge, as opposed to woodworking chisels that are used with the bevel up. Of course any gouge can sometimes be used inverted. Does that make it a chisel? Whenever the shaving from a cut goes to the side of the tool opposite the bevel, the tool is gouging.

-- Phil Allin - There are woodworkers and people who collect woodworking tools. The woodworkers have a chair to sit on that they made.
