How This Tool Is Built

We started with a sharper edge, but we didn't stop there. Vanquish vibration, say adios to constant resharpening, and let wispy shavings fly. Delivering superior performance at your lathe is what drives our manufacturing. Keep reading to step into our factory and discover the rigorous process that makes our tools unequalled.

It's been 40 years in the making. That's right, M42 high speed steel has frequented our factory for 4 decades and was a clear choice for the tools. You'll grind less - a cobalt additive bumps M42’s red hardness off the charts for impressive wear resistance. And cuts will be cleaner - the steel produces a finer, sharper edge. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smooth cuts. 

Our M42 starts as solid stock and is precision machined (not formed) with a unique round tang. 

Rigorous and extensive. That sums up our manufacturing process. But just glance at that good looking tool to the left. Every inch proclaims "superior performance at your lathe!"

This is perfectly demonstrated by each tool's vibration-demolishing round tang, with a diameter so precise you'll here a 'pop' when you pull it out of the handle. And the flutes, meticulously polished for speedy chip flow and a sharper edge. And of course, everything is sharp and hand-inspected before arriving at your shop. 

We haven't even started sharing about our patented aluminum handles! (Can you tell we love talking tools?) They're designed for balance, maneuverability, and interchangeability. 

Our manufacturing is comprehensive. At the lathe, you'll feel the workmanship.

Razor sharp and they stay that way

Got my Bowl Set a week ago and i have tried to dull them but so far haven't been that successful. What has been successful is shaping bowls and visiting the grinder less often. Thanks Carter and Son!

Thank you; The ultimate bowl set and the detail gouge also the 1/2” double gouge.

I have tried several of the tools recently received, turning a small bowl and a duck call. The bowl turning set is very sharp. Proving that using a quality tool will make the project even more enjoyable when turning. I also purchased the detail gouge. I then tried it turning a duck call the gouge is great. There is a learning curve with the aluminum handles and just how sharp the tools are out of the carton. I plan on saving and purchasing the parting tool roughing gouge to add to the tools I recently purchased.
Thank you
Robert Keith

Ready to go

Receiving my order two days after ordering, I unboxed the tools, installed the handles and was roughing out a bowl five minutes later. There was no sharpening needed, they were ready. The fit and finish was perfect. I could not have asked for a better experience. There are several more tools that I would like to get from Carter and Son toolworks. I am hoping they will make a larger Skew Chisel. I don't want to buy any more tools with a tang. Valerie Carter was nice enough to substitute a negative rake scraper in the ultimate bowl set, being that I had already purchased a bowl scraper from a local store. Thanks so much, Mike

Great Tools

I love the tools. The edges held great and the handles were real comfortable as well. I have used several different handles so far and the aluminum handles are by far the best I have used so far.

Very Nice

i added to my cutting tools after comparing Carter & Sons to others. I love them. Nice, solid, smooth cutting.
