    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

    Good Quality Tool

    The tool is high quality but I am not a fan of the grind that it comes with. It is very catchy and because the grind is too large of radius across the nose.

    Very nice quality

    I’m new to turning I’ve been torn between the powder metal cutting tools , M2, M42, HSS and on and on. Too many options!
    I ordered a detail gouge from Carter and sons. And a detail gouge made of the powdered metal tools from another tool maker.
    They both were very sharp with both having nice handles. My first inexperienced thought was how much smoother the Carter and Son M42 cut. No chatter like the coarser edge on the other tool. High quality finish and I love the feel of the handle. I’m going with Carter and Sons.
