There's also the Martel hook tool.
I've never used it but have been tempted in the past to buy one

Hi
Is this the type of tool a wood bodger uses to create a bowl ?
Looks a bit like sheperds crook gone wrong?

Sort of but the one used by the bodgers on a pole lathe is not really strong enough to juse on a powered lathe. Managed to get one from a german company Andy Coates recommended. Just got back from a show so haven't had a chance to try it out yet though. Still unpacking the van LOL.
