The flat type are used more for roughing out. The rounded better know
ar a finger nail gound are better for spindle work.
And the flat end skew is used for final shaping.
Square peel better, pointed poke better. Depends on what you're doing. If
you're going across the grain at a steep angle, poke; at a shallow angle,
peel. Norm's doing spindles, so he should be peeling, though for reasons
known only to himself, he stuffs the nose into the piece rather than doing
it as others do.
This guy is somewhere in between on the gouge.
He could also be peeling like he does here.

Most gouges are shipped "unshaped' so you can decide how you want to grind it...
(finger nail, swept wing, Irish Grind, etc...
Also, you might be talking roughing gouges, spindle gouges or bowl gouges, which
all have different shapes/grinds for different purposes... Sort of like
different shape carving chisels for different jobs..
A grind that works well for smoothing large areas of a rolling pin might get you
in big trouble if you try to hollow a bowl or cut a bead with it..
great group of folks and very helpful
