What makes a 5-star 3/4” skew?

  • Less time at the grinder, cleaner cuts at the lathe. M42 means superior wear resistance and edge sharpness.
  • Put comfort and control first with aluminum handles. 
  • Interchangeability, without compromising strength and tolerances. 
  • Hand polished, sharpened and inspected.
  • 100% American materials and manufacturing. Backed by a lifetime guarantee and hassle-free returns. 

M42 high speed steel makes the cut

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

For woodturners M42’s properties mean less time at the grinder and cleaner cuts at the lathe. Carter and 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.

Handles that 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. 


      • Blade measures: 3/4" wide, 9-1/2" overall      Thickness: 5/16"  
      • Tang size: 1/2"     Handle: 12" x 3/4" with 1/2" adapter

      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.
