Topic tags/keywords: scraper hollower crown cryogenic question

I ran across this tool, and can’t find any info on it beyond what Crown puts out. The same text appears on every site selling it I found.

The full name of the tool
Crown Tools UK Cryogenic Wood Lathe Wood Turning Scraper & Hollowing Tool – 24650

To ask a real newbie question: what is that cutter made with a small shaft sticking out the front. What does it do? Is that what is called an egger Or is “little do-hickey” the official term I know that Sorby has a somewhat similar tool

Here is a pic of it.

Just a wag, but it looks like a 3/16” (or 5mm) HSS cutting tool that could be used to hollow smaller vessels.

My Sorby is about the same. Two scrapers and two cutters.
The round end cutter is for hollowing, the pointed cuter is for corner of boxes and the such (I have never used the pointed one)
I always use mine for hollowing; the tip can be fully rotated. Most of the time I only expose about 1/16” of the tip so it makes it almost impossible to get a catch. I use the main bar as a “bevel”.
This is a video on the Sorby and I am sure the Crown works about the same. I have never used mine with the bit extended as much as they show here.
