*NB: UK and US nomenclature for gouge sizes (particularly milled flute bowl gouges) differ.We quote the nominal gouge size as per the manufacturer's catalogue, based on local sizing traditions.

Please bear in mind that material availability may also affect gouge sizing, though not to a degree that affects performance.
