    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

    Carter and Son 1/16” parting tool.

    I have been wanting a 1/16” parting tool for some time ,I have 3 other parting tools and I decided to go with this tool to complement my other Carter and son bowl turning and spindle tools. The quality and build of their products are superior to other tools I use in turning my project's. I am fairly new to woodturning but coming from a mechanical background. I appreciate quality and durability when using good tools. The tools will not make you an expert but it makes the experience of the hobby a whole lot more enjoyable. Thank you Carter and son for making such a quality product for woodturners. I will be purchasing more products as my budget allows.

    Fantastic tool in many ways

    This is a great tool if you cut your blanks a bit too short. A great investment in a long time tool that looks great in the hand and in the display rack.
