    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 Product & Service

    Already owning several Carter & Sons tools left no doubt about where I would purchase a needed spindle gouge. The quality speaks for itself.
    I was kept well informed on the progress of the order. Had a friendly response to a question. And, the gouge arrived in short order.
    Who could ask for anything better?

    My first spindle tool

    Normally I'm a bowl turner. this is my first spindle tool. It arrived quickly, and was and still is very sharp! If long thin shavings, rapid box hollowing and a very clean tool finish are any sign, it works great! this is my third Carter and Son turning tool, just a dozen or more to go and I should be tooled up. Thanks for the great work and tools.

    3/8" Spindle Gouge

    Another great tool

    I bought the 3/8" spindle gouge because I already have their 1/2" bowl gouge, 3/8" detail spindle gouge, 1" bowl scraper and 1" skew. They all came preshaped and razor sharp. These tool stay sharp throughout a project with just a touch up from my diamond cc hone. Then one quick pass on the cbn wheel for a final clean up pass and sanding is a breeze starting with 220-240 grit.

    You're not only buying quality tools but second to none customer service. I've never had another company reply to my emails as quickly as Valerie does, every time I have a question. Plus she always has an answer. That's worth the tool price IMO.


    Seems to be great. Just starting out turning but I can tell from the cuts and quality of the cuts my next tools I buy will be carter tools
