    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

    Parting Tool

    Great tool! Using it to make thin segmented rings out of larger segmented rings. Works like a dream.
    I would find it useful if Carter made some short videos to demonstrate how to sharpen their tools properly. so I won't mess up the great performance. Also negative rack scrapers too.

    This thin parting tools cuts awesome. Wish I had gotten it years ago!

    Slow learner when it comes to mechanical things

    Although I’ve been wood turning for 20 years, self taught, the amount I know is humiliating. Nevertheless, I’ve learned enough to know that Carter & Son knows how to make tools that make you feel like you’re doing a good job, which I’d guess has a lot to do with their designs and the process of hardening their steel.

    It’s embarrassing to say, yet true, I never knew how to make the type of tip on a parting tool I found on their 1/16th parting tool. It’s made intricate work less frustrating.

    (I once told my younger brother that he should buy a “Big Green Egg” barbecue “because it will make you look like you know what you’re doing.” That’s what it did for me. Well, that’s like what Carter tools have done for me (of course, from my point of view).

    Also, the amount of steel behind the blade makes cuts more stable, and more stability helps avoid more, regrettable errors.

    Sometimes, a person gets what they pay to own. That’s been true with Carter tools; and no, I haven’t received any free tools. Reviews are something I try to avoid, whether the experience was good or not so good, ‘cause this will come up under my name on the internet, and I don’t really like that experience.

    Excellent quality

    Added this to my tool rack to join the other 5 carter and son tools and handles that are already there. Love the feel and the way they stay sharp. You can bet I will be getting more
