Chisel id

Found a bunch of Sorby chisels at estate sale today.
Can someone tell me what this chisel is called? It's the only carbide one.
My guess it's for cutting under the lip of a bowl.
Thanks for any info.

Your guess is correct.  It is for interior undercutting, but is more used for lidded boxes and such.  Usually you can work a narrow gouge to undercut the rim of a bowl.  You have a scraper, while a gouge will allow you to cut, giving a smoother surface.  I own the round nose and trapezoid types, and they are used very carefully, so as not to grab or crush that abrupt edge.  Sanding rounds the edge away,  making the gouge a better deal most places.
Better to follow the leader than the pack. Less to step in.

Thanks. Don't do much turning and trying to decide what chisels to sell.

Looks like something used to make the dovetail on a tenon
