    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

    King of Roughing Gouges!

    This is a beast of a roughing gouge! Very heavy duty...and cuts like going through butter. And on top of it all....it's a beautiful tool as well. The first Carter & Sons tool I purchased was a 3/4" Bowl Gouge. Liked it so much that I now have 10 of their tools. Each and every one of them is a joy to use.

    Yet another great tool

    Within two weeks after I bought my first set, I ended up buying four other chisels and gauges! This Spindle Roughing Gouge is a beast! It cuts through wood as it is butter. It is pricy but yet this another great tool from Carter and Son.

    Great roughing for small or very large

    Very strong and solid build. I used it the same day on an 18” dia 10” dry bowl blank that still had the bark. Great shavings and it did not feel like I was being beat up. Super sharp and peeled away the wood with ease. I’d recommend this to all my friends.

    First use was for turning down a batch of handles for kitchen tools. I couldn’t be more pleased with the tool. Super sharp, well balanced and massive, the tool made quick work of the green Osage Orange.
    Love this thing, highly recommended.
