    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

    Spindle gouge with handle

    I am very impressed with the tool and the handle. I was not sure I’d like the handle, but I love it. The fit to my hand is excellent and the weight and balance are superb. The tool is also outstanding it takes a beautiful edge, and clearly holds the edge longer than my old M2 tool. I also like the way the flute is polished, as I hone the inside bevel for a better cut so didn’t have to first remove the machining marks but could go immediately to my hone. I use a 40/40 grind, so had to do that since the tool came with a 45 bevel, but that was a minor thing. have already recommended this tool to several of my friends.

    Simply the Best

    I have made several purchases from Carter and son and in my experience they are the best on the market for holding an edge. No need to look elsewhere. Thank you

    Great tool, as always.

    The gouge arrived well packed, sharp, and ready to use. Carter and Son Toolworks has been, and will continue to be, my go-to source for lathe tools.
