I have many Ashley Iles tools & haven’t had a problem with the steel at all, I don’t like their handles but that’s personal taste, I always buy unhandled & turn a Sorby shaped handle as this is the style of handle I prefer & being a turner it seems wrong to be paying for something I’m perfectly capable of doing

Using both, I don't.
worth keeping an eye on if you're thinking of Crown cryo. They're out of stock of the larger ones atm but the last one I bought was the same price as before covid. I've always made up the money with something else for free P&P.

Hello, would you guys consider this a quality tool?
I have some Ashley Isles spindle gouges and they are great but I don’t have any bowl gouges. Have you looked at the Simon Hope he carries the Crown Cyro double ended bowl gouges? I have three of them and have to say they are superb. Still prefer my Henry Taylor Superfluts mind but then difference in price!
