    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

    It’s been better than expected. I’ve been very happy with all carter and sons tools
    But I asked about a conventional straight grind Scew and was very surprised to find out that there is a upcharge for this ? It seems a little cheap on their part After the amount I’ve spent with them

    A Very Satisfied Customer!

    I had more than one gift certificate for Carter and Sons Toolworks, so I called the office, and a very kind lady answered the phone...no machine to deal with! She was not only helpful and congenial, but she also went out of the way to make sure I got the best value for my purchase! I felt like she was an ally.

    The tools that I ordered were even better than advertised. You can tell by the feel and how they work that they are of the highest quality. I will definitely buy from them again! I don’t believe you’ll find better quality or service in our woodturning world, and their prices are very competitive.

    1/8 " parting tool

    I've used other 1/8" parting tools but never like this one I love the way they are sharpened so easy to keep sharpened the angle and the radius of an 8 " wheel what a great idea makes it so easy I also purchased a 1/16 and a 316

    Great tool as usual

    Just received a 1/8” parting tool. As with the other Carter and Son tools I especially love the heavily weighted handle. The added weight makes it so much easier to use.

    Great Parting Tool!

    I ordered my first Carter & Sons tool and couldn't be more pleased. I needed a new parting tool to replace another popular tool maker's carbide model. The 1/8" parting tool from Carter is excellent, great balance, and sharp from the outset. Thanks!
