    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

    The best skew I've ever bought

    Extremely versitile grind. Heavy duty and has a 3/4 inch shaft. I made my own handle, but with the heft of this skew; you should really get the handle from Carter and son.

    Jose Raygoza
    The big 1-1/4 Skew

    I was very impressed and completely satisfied with the unmatched quality of this tool. The ergonomics of the handle combined with the heft of the tool made it a complete pleasure to use.

    1 1/4 inch Skew and 20 inch handle

    I have not been able to use it yet. I am in the process of an addition on my woodshop. What I can say is the quality of your product is outstanding and really can't wait to get to use this tool.

    Another great tool by C&S

    This is my C&S tool #12-14, I think. Just what I start to expect. Has good heft, comes already pretty sharp. Fine tuning on my 600 grid CNB wheel leaves that silky surface skews are known for. Used it on the outside of a square profile 10” cedar bowl and the right angle corner have no tear out. That requires extremely sharp tools and fine passes. Check and check. To avoid catches, use the cutting edge close to the lower corner. The thick M42 stock allows a wider tip angle and easier bevel riding that with cheap skews with thin stock and very acute tip angle.

    Very Happy!

    This skew has been a joy to use. It's easy for me to control. I like being able to swap out handles to fit the task.
