How This Tool Is Built

We start with the sharpest edge, and we don't stop there. Vanquish vibration, say adios to constant resharpening, and let wispy shavings fly. Delivering superior performance at your lathe drives our manufacturing. 

We’ve worked with M42 high speed steel for 4 decades, and it’s uniquely suited to woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive provides unparalleled edge holding. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

Our carefully sourced M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang for unmatched strength. Every gouge sports a distinctive flute polish. This boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow. Learn more about M42 HSS here.

Rigorous and detailed sums up our manufacturing. Each tool’s vibration-demolishing round tang has a diameter so precise you’ll hear a ‘pop’ when you pull it out of the handle. And every tool leaves our factory razor sharp and backed by a 100% lifetime guarantee. Built to last!

Rest assured our aluminum handles feel as great as they look. Perfectly weighted for balance and maneuverability, and designed to fit your hand. You’ll forget the handle is even there, in the best way possible. Two set screws secure your tool into the handle and allow removal for sharpening.

From flute polish to handle knurling, we’re not cutting corners. Whether you’re just starting out, or have been turning for decades, it’s an honor to serve you with quality tools. Learn more about our story here

Woodturning handles

A older Woodturner friend/mentor visited me a few weeks ago. He buys your tools handleless. He said before now how he can make his own handles and not spend the money on something he can make. He used mine with handles and was raving about them. He talked about how much he liked how they felt in his hand. He liked the weight, balance, shape the smooth texture to them. He really went on about them.
As a thank you for all his help with my turning I bought him a handle. 😊 After the initial “you should not have done that” he took one of your tools he has and immediately put it on his new handle. He was holding it and admiring it when I left. Thank you for the great gift idea.

Awesome Handles

Look great, fit the hand & hold the best turning tools I have. Oh yeah, they’re Carter & Sons tools!

As good as it gets

These are, by far, the best tools I have used. Their size, weight and balance provide an increased stability without sacrificing comfort or ease of use. Say goodbye to chatter and hello to silky smooth cuts.
