What could be better than working with hand tools? Making your tools by yourself.
I found this video showing how to make mini-gouges from cylindrical steel rods found in any CD/DVD-ROM drive. The diameter is 3mm, and the hardness seems quite adequate (the claim is about 55 HRC). On the inside surface I used cylindrical diamond burr after grinding it with the cutting wheel. So far pretty happy with the result, especially considering the price.
