I've known a lot of woodcarvers. None would "beat the hell out of" anything when woodcarving. Are you thinking stone mason maybe? When using a lathe, it takes an even and gentle touch to the wood with a steady grip on the tool. Nothing to whack or beat.

I dunno. I'm a woodworker myself, and when I chisel hardwoods it takes very firm blows to make a clean mortise cross-grain, even with a "Scary sharp" edge.

Lathes take a gentle touch, true, but my cutting chisels have way stronger striker plates than that thing posted earlier and those "tines" on the fork are super thin. I really doubt they'd hold up to being used as a turning tool against hard maple, let alone softwood. Plus, they're the wrong direction to be a turning tool. All of mine have the cutter edge at 90-degrees to the axis. These look like thin knife blades all in line with each other. There's no cutter pointing "up" from them.

I'm still voting leather. ;)

Of course a tool can be used for many things in the right hands...

Hey...I said

"Could double for flipping burgers and piercing hot dogs on the grill too".

That bird needs to be redirected my way once you get the dog off. I already have three dogs and bus isn't big enough for another one. Now the bird I can paint blue and mount on the front bumper since I have a bluebird bus.
