US BUILT & GUARANTEED

Designed and built in our Seattle factory, each tool is backed by a lifetime guarantee.

M42 HIGH SPEED STEEL

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 tight molecular structure produces a finer, sharper edge. Less time at the grinder - cleaner cuts at the lathe.

HANDLES & ADAPTERS

Experience comfort and control at your lathe. Aluminum is the perfect weight for a balanced, even feel. And our patented handle shape fits your hand.

Three sizes of aluminum adapters provide complete interchangability and easy removal for sharpening.
