      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

      Great tools

      I have 3 Carter and Son tools. 2 negative rake scrapers that do a super job. I just got a 5/8” bowl gouge but it is a Christmas present so I won’t be able to use it until 12/26😀. I am sure it will do a fantastic job. Thank you for super made in America products

      New Bowl Gouge

      I like it! Handle is smooth and well balanced. The steel appears to be very hard and cuts well, and has lasted a long time.

      Superb value!

      My 5’8” bowl gouge from Carter and Son is the best investment I’ve made in turning equipment! I have been using it daily for 6 days and haven’t had to sharpen it yet,..including turning very hard species like eucalyptus and grapefruit wood. I give it the highest recommendation!
