    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

    1" skew

    Excellent. A really well made skew that is comfortable, and holds it's edge forever. It has become my go-to tool.

    Something to think about

    Obviously sharpening your tools is a necessity how ever these tools don’t need to be sharpened very often but when you do need to sharpen them I don’t believe you need to quench these in water like a lot of the other tools. Other inferior tools need to be quenched or they turn blue, it’s like the steel is burning. Carter and Sons tools just don’t do that. I’m not an expert on steel, that’s for sure but the steel these tools are made from is so much better than my other turning tools. Just one more thing that makes these tools the Best you can get your hands on.

    Great tools

    I have a 1 1/4” Roughing Gouge coming tomorrow. If it is as good as the 1/2” and 1” Skews I have I will be a happy camper.

    Very comfortable handles and no more fear of the skew!

    Work of art

    I am very pleased with the skew I purchased. Not only does it function as I expected, it is a work of art in itself.

    Woodcarver for years, new to turning

    I am relatively new to turning. I have purchased a few of your tools and I really like the way they feel in my hands. Arrives very sharp and stays that way for a long time.
