      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

      5/8 bowl gouge

      Outstanding! The handle is nicely balanced, and the tool was razor sharp upon delivery. I roughed out 2 ash bowls, it cuts beautifly.

      Named incorrectly

      Ya know how a great tool feels in your hands? I’ve had several non-turning friends hold this gouge. The general reaction was...WOW!
      I’ve turned one dry oak bowl with it, and some ornaments too. It’s remained as sharp as when I received it. I call it the wood pig. Left to run wild it will remove large amounts of material. Handled with a soft touch, and because it has such a sharp edge, it can do spires on Christmas ornaments. Nice tool.

      A New Standard

      Roughed out a few large bowls with my new 5/8” bowl gouge this week end and had a blast. It’s easily the best tool in my kit - rugged, well balanced, and a pleasure to use. WOW!!! I look forward to my next purchase from Carter & Sons.

      Amazing

      Just purchased my 5/8" bowl gouge at the Raleigh AAW Symposium. It is amazing! It holds an edge extremely long and the balance of the handle while turning is unbelievable. This gouge pairs perfectly with my new muster monster powermatic lathe!
