You've already said it's not a gouge - that only really leaves a chisel with an end that' s not all at 90° to the sides, a round nosed chisel - a bit like a really badly sharpened chisel.

:dunno:

Something like this?

That's a turning tool, do you use a mallet when turning? :dunno:

I think it has to be a gouge of some sort - there's much larger gouges available than what's used for turning.

.........but that's a gouge, (a scribing gouge), and the OP has said it's not a gouge. :scratch:

Here's a nice "Framing gouge" @ 109 euros

(I'm learning new stuff today). :-)
