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

Awesome Tools

I waited over a few months to get a real set of tools and I’m glad I went with Carter and Sons. The tools are amazingly sharp and the 16 and 20 inch handles are bulletproof. I’m already planning on more tools.You can’t go wrong here.

Jerry Haynes
Great balance on handle

Bought both a 12” and 16” handle. Like the weight and balance on both. Love the way they handle. Excellent craftsmanship and customer service.

Clifford Greaves
Great handle on my Carter & Son spear scraper!

I have been able to use this handle with your spear scraper for the first time while attending a Woodturning Class at the John C Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. Wow, this scraper handle combination is really a great package. I was initially very concerned with the weight of the handle when I took it out of the shipping box. Historically, I have made all my tool handles, so this Carter & Son handle is a first, and it has a very different feel. In use however, it works well! The craftsmanship is top notch, and provides a snug fit to the 3/4” shaft of the scraper! Will I buy another of these handles? Yes, I think I will, when the time comes to buy a new bowl gouge. In any case, I highly recommend their products as the two that I own are excellent! Thanks again, Jan, for working with me to put this package together!

Nice handles

I had more C&S tools than handles, and found changing the cutters was enough of an inconvenience that I was using other tools. Now I have a handle for all my C&S tools. 😁👍

Bowl gouge handle

These are the best handles. I have 4 of them now and couldn’t be more satisfied.
