If you're looking for one with the trapezoidal cross section, Packard, for one, has a couple choices.

If I make my own I have 2 questions.

The steel is square.What is best way to secure it in the handle?Ive seen how to do this in the past but cant remember where.

When shaping the cutting end I just need to take my time and not overheat it right? Thanks !

Drill a round hole in the handle that is slightly smaller then the square rod. If you wish you can then place some epoxy into the hole, insert the rod, let the glue set then shape.

Some will rough shape the tool before inserting into the hole, your call.

I believe a true Bedan has a trapezoidal cross section as Jeff mentioned which helps it to not bind when making plunging cuts.

I like to use mine to make tenons and mortises.

Depends on where you are from.  The French turners use a straight sided bedan, and the English style is trapazoid in cross section.  My reading suggest the French version has been around longer. 

There is also the bevel up and bevel down debate.

One could always grind the sides to make the tool trapezoid, all you would need to grind would be about an inch or 2

Good points Gentlemen. I have also seen the "cutting edge" ground at an angle to match the dove tail on a chuck. Pretty versatile tool in the hands of someone that knows how to use it.
