Overview

Skew chisels excel at creating a glassy-smooth finish and a variety of other work, including v-cuts and beads. Our skews are ground with a radiused cutting edge, and arrive at your shop ready to use.

  • M42 HSS' unique durability and razor edge mean less grinding and cleaner cuts
  • Put comfort and control first with an interchangeable aluminum handle
  • Handcrafted in the USA, and backed by a lifetime guarantee and hassle-free returns
  • Shipped sharp and ready to use!

    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

    Review

    Like all of the Carter and Son products that I have used, this Skew is far superior to all of the English products that I have purchased in the past.
    I really don't need to look at other web sites for my needs.

    She's a beaut, Clark!

    I had some spindle work to do and I wanted to get a really good finish so I wouldn't have to sand much at the end. I was thrilled with how well my new 1" skew shaved the surface! I didn't have to get the sandpaper out at all. What a pleasure to hold such a finely balanced precision tool.
