What makes a 5-star 3/4” skew chisel?

  • Sports a round tang for strength, stability & longevity
  • Rounded top and bottom edge for increased maneuverability
  • Superior M42 high speed steel ensures less grinding & cleaner cuts at the lathe
  • Put comfort and control first with an aluminum handle
  • Sharpened & inspected
  • Completely interchangeable handle system
  • 100% American manufacturing backed by a lifetime guarantee & hassle-free returns

The Specs

  • Blade measures 3/4” outside diameter x 9-1/2” overall, 5/16” thick
  • 1/2” tang diameter
  • 12” x 3/4” handle & 1/2” adapter

M42 makes the cut

It’s no wonder M42 high speed steel is favored across industries. A distinct cobalt additive bumps M42’s red hardness off the charts for impressive wear resistance. And M42’s unique structure produces a finer, sharper edge. 

For you, M42 means less time grinding and cleaner cuts at the lathe. Carter & Son was founded because we realized many tools are machined from subpar steel, leaving us (and you!) making far too many trips to the grinder. M42 is the optimal steel for turning wood. It holds a long-lasting razor edge and is quickly sharpened on a conventional grinder.

Put comfort & control 1st 

Carter & Son handles offer comfort and control at your lathe. Aluminum is the perfect weight for a balanced feel. And the comfortable shape fits your hand. Tight tolerances achieved in our factory mean your tool and adapter fit snuggly, reducing vibration. Interchangeability is possible using our aluminum adapters.

    Beats HSS and Carbide

    I've owned and used many types of Skews and Gouges made with High Speed Steel (HSS) and Carbide and have been dissatisfied with their performance. The HSS tools became dull too quickly and I would have to stop and sharpen them at the grinder just when I was in the "groove". The Carbide tools have chipped when I hit a bushing or knocked the tool on the lathe which meant either discarding it or spending a lot of time at the diamond stone getting an edge back.

    I just finished using the 3/4 inch Carter and Sons, M42 steel Skew, turning Paduk wood and I'm extremely satisfied with this American made tool. In fact I just ordered another C&S Spindle Gouge. I truly appreciate quality tools. After 50 years in my woodworking hobby and 35 years as a NASA Contractor Engineer, I know quality when I use it. This company's products exhibit the American quality I've been missing for a long time. Thank you Carter and Sons.

    Custom made skew chisels

    I had 4 3/4" skews ground 3/8" thick , to be used as small box scrapers. I had them leave the end left square so that I could grind them to the shape I needed. The tools came with the same wonderful finish as all the rest of the tools. I have not put them to use yet , but expect they will preform with the same quality results as all the rest of the tools.

    Forth tool I purchased from carter and son

    Skew shape

    The 3/4 inch skew arrived with a very sharp curved edge. I’m not sure how I’m going to use a stone to sharpen it.
