    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

    Beautiful 11/4 inch spindle gouge

    Best roughing gouge I’ve seen. Holds an edge and absolutely no chance of it breaking with a 3/4 inch tang

    1-1/4" Spindle Roughing Gouge

    WOW! Now this is a tool. Beautiful craftsmanship and they even put a flat surface on the tong to line up the gouge in the handle. This is now my wife's favorite lathe tool. She lets me use it sometimes. Excellent quality tool.

    Carter tools are no joke. Hefty and solid. If you are on the fence on Carter and Sons, be forewarned, they are hard to resist. A 20 inch handle tames the largest adversary, while the 10 inch scribes the intricate details. The steel is very good. Self sharpening would be better even, but I haven't seen that feature offered...
