    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

    Amazing tool!

    This Spindle Roughing Gouge had been on my wishlist for a while and I'm so happy I was finally able to pull the trigger and get it! It is stout, solid, and maintains a razor sharp edge. It is what all spindle roughing gouges should be. Very satisfied!

    Tool quality

    My wife was first to buy your tools some years back, she no longer turns, but I use them regularly. All your tools have great design, fantastic quality, keep an edge for a long time, are not brittle, and are easy to sharpen. Now, I sharpen often, but is nice to know the tool is that good. I mainly do bowls and boxes, and with secondary bevel , can get around inside of bowl easy. Sanding time is way down - and that is good
