    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 drives our manufacturing. 

    We’ve worked with M42 high speed steel for decades, and it’s uniquely suited for woodturning. You’ll grind less - a cobalt additive bumps M42’s red hardness off the charts for impressive wear resistance. And the steel produces a finer, sharper edge for clean cuts. M42 is a win-win: less grinding and smoother cuts. 

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

    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. Gouge flutes are meticulously polished for the sharpest edge. 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 and the tools right here

    A very high quality tool!

    I have purchased my first Carter and Son tool and as compared to my other tools it's quality is definitely top shelf! I will be replacing some of my older tools with C&S replacements. The handles are so comfortable, well balanced, and a pleasure to work with. The tool edges are razor sharp when received.

    1” skew

    This is my first skew and i have been using it on everything. It came sharp and ready to go. I don’t know why some are afraid of this tool. Buy one and get going.

    Work

    I work away from home. So unfortunately I have not even had a chance to see the tools I ordered yet. The service I received was second to none though.

    1" skew

    I haven't had a chance to really put the 1" skew through its paces, but I did test it out smoothing a couple of spindles - one maple, one walnut - and was shocked by how smooth the resulting surface was. I already owned a lighter-duty 3/4" skew and it never produced anything close. I can only imagine what will be possible once I learn how to take best advantage of the new tool!
