A razor edge, provided by just the right steel, is imperative for turning wood. Surprisingly, many woodturning tools are machined from subpar steel. At Carter and Son we’ve done our research and know that M42 high speed steel is the premium steel for turning wood. It hones to a fine, sharp edge and retains that edge due to a 10% content of cobalt. 

Your handle connects you to your work, that’s why we’ve carefully designed the weight and curvature of our signature handles for comfort, easy control, and chatter reduction. Each handle has two set screws to secure your tool, and knurling for grip. Our innovative handles are all made in our own factory and are patented. 

All the design work, machining, inspection and shipping of this tool is done in our Seattle factory. As a family business dedicated to engineering ingenuity, precision workmanship and a passion for turning we ensure that every tool you receive from us is perfect. Happy turning!

A quick overview of this 5/8” bowl gouge:
