New tool meets old

So got my Thompson 5/8 U shape bowl gouge yesterday evening. Today made a handle and depth gauge for sharpening. Bought it to replace old 5/8 Crown M-2 bowl gouge. Good news old Crown gouge has couple more years of life in her.

Guess that's a gloat.
Since the Old One has a couple of years left and it seems you will be hanging onto the Old One as well, does this make the New One a mistress at the lathe?
Sounds like you are spending a lot of time and money on the New One (handles, gauges, no telling what-all else).
Beware, gouges can cause spectacular catches when handled wrong.
I assume you will be giving details of the difference in their...mmm... performance?

Thompson about best price for 5/8” bowl gouge out there. Debated buying a Woodchuck Unitool for few more bucks but sharpening vice replacing inserts won out.

That Crown tool is about seventeen or eighteen years old and served me well, great for roughing and finishing cuts.
