    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

    Best looking tool in the carousel. Outstanding craftsmanship. Haven't used it yet, but have no reason to doubt that it can do the job on hardwoods which proved to be too much for my old tanged parting tool.

    Perfect tool to slide right in your handles. Cuts great and nice size!

    Haven’t received order yet

    Can’t review the parting tool if I haven’t received the order yet. Might want to wait until customer at least receives it first.

    Very high quality !

    My first parting tool.

    I’ve been seriously turning about 4 years now but put most of my emphasis on high quality gouges and just made do with the diamond parting tool that my Dad gave me with a 1937 craftsman lathe. It’s kind of dangerously gotten the job done for me but once I got my Carter & Son 1/8 parting tool I’m like OMG!!!
    It’s truly like slicing through warm butter even on oak and persimmon!!! I now have 5 Carter & Son tools and guess I will shift over to their more specialty tools for a while. Prices are a challenge for me but I believe in quality and Carter & Son tools are 20 levels above the Sorby’s and Taylor tools, in my opinion at least. I’ll just save up and own nothing but Carter & Son’s over time.
