What makes a 5-star 1/8” parting tool?

  • Less time at the grinder, cleaner cuts at the lathe. M42 means superior wear resistance and edge sharpness.
  • Put comfort and control first with aluminum handles. 
  • Interchangeability, without compromising strength and tolerances. 
  • Hand polished, sharpened and inspected.
  • 100% American materials and manufacturing. Backed by a lifetime guarantee and hassle-free returns. 

M42 high speed steel makes the cut

It’s no wonder M42 is favored across industries. A distinct cobalt additive bumps M42’s red hardness off the charts, ensuring impressive wear resistance. And M42’s unique structure produces a finer, sharper edge. 

For woodturners M42’s properties mean less time at the grinder and cleaner cuts at the lathe. Carter and Son was founded because we realized many tools are machined from subpar steel, leaving us (and you!) making far too many trips to the grinder. M42 is the optimal steel for turning wood. It holds a long-lasting razor edge and is quickly sharpened on a conventional grinder.

Handles that put comfort & control 1st 

Carter & Son handles offer comfort and control at your lathe. Aluminum is the perfect weight for a balanced feel. And the comfortable shape fits your hand. Tight tolerances achieved in our factory mean your tool and adapter fit snuggly, reducing vibration. Interchangeability is possible using our aluminum adapters. 


    • Blade measures: 1/8" x 9-1/2" overall  
    • Tang size: 1/2"      Handle Size: 12" x 3/4" with 1/2" adapter

    I put a walnut handle on my 1/8th inch parting tool, and enjoy it a great deal. As advertised, it does seem to hold an edge well.

    Best Tool Company Going

    Although I have just begun using Carter & Son tools, they are out performing any of my other turning tools. They have a great feel and stay sharp. The service at C&S is top notch. Thanks C&S, I'll be back.

    Great Tools

    The tools have exceeded my expectations. That is why I return and continue to purchase additional tools! I am gladly a repeat customer.

    I would, however, make a few changes to the purchasing experience.

    First, I would either provide a means to purchase the allen wrench for handles and adapters, clearly indicate that the allen wrench is needed but not provided, or include the allen wrench with any purchase that includes a handle/adapter.

    Second, I purchased a detail gouge and it was unclear that I needed a different handle adapter that any of the adapters I already own. When someone purchases the tool only (unhandled), I would add a some kind of message that stating that this tool requires "this specific adapter" .
