Re: carpenter's gouge vs carving gouge

Firmer vs. non-firmer won’t change the profile. One thing to be aware of, and it may not matter for your task, is that an English #5 is the same sweep as a continental Europe #6. Or the other way around, a continental (Two Cherries for example) #5 is the same sweep as an English #4. Again, this distinction may not matter for your task.
