    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

    My new Skew

    Thanks To all the Carter Clan for getting my skew over to me in Scotland.
    This was my first purchase and will certainly not be my last.

    Cheers 👍😀

    A great start

    When I first used Carter's Giant Skew, I was a bit put off by it's weight. Keep in mind that I am handicapped and have to sit on a rolling stool to operate my lathe. With it's weight and it's 60 degrees cutting angle, my right arm has to be held above my shoulder to use the skew. Even so, it did a marvelous job with all that weight working to dampen chatter and vibration. I spent two solid days of rounding up a tree limb (with my skew, of course, cutting v-notches, rolling barrels, putting another v-notch in the middle of each barrel and then rolling beads. Finally I would shave the workpiece down until it was clean and repeat.
    I loved the tool, but not the pain in my arm, so I regroung the cutting angle to around 40 degrees which brought my arm lower and seems to have solved any and all problems. The only other thing I did was to touch up the cutting edge on a set of diamond plates, the finest of which is an 8000 grit and gives a true mirror finish and shaving edge.
    I bought the skew from Carter's, but now I've made it all mine and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
    Would I do business with Carter and Son again? Well right now they should be sharpening up a detail gouge and packing it for shipment to me. So, that's a definite yes.
