Does anyone make HSS inserts for carbide tool holders?

I have to make a number of fussy little
groove and radius lathe cutters. Grinding
a HSS insert would be easier than grinding
them out of a full size lathe tool.

I don't know if they'd fit a carbide holder or if you have to get the Warner holders also.
I got a set of the their holders and bits. I prefer HSS and am too lazy to grind bits if I don't have to.

Would drill blanks be too slender?
Everede makes boring bars that use small HSS tool bits with a triangular cross section.
