Short Bowl Gouges

Roy Girolami
>As had to happen eventually, I have shortened my bowl gouge through grinding to where it only has a little bit of the groove left. I have noticed it doesn't cut as long as it used to before needing to be sharpened. i wondered if the HSS gouges are tempered along the length like a CS gouge and I have gotten beyond the hard part.

Anybody know for sure?
