    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

    A fantastic tool

    I purchased this tool at the same time that I purchased a gouge so this review is similar. I've been in wood working for about 30 years and I just started using a lathe in November 2019. I started with a cheep straight skew that cost $20.00. I just received my new Carter and Son round skew and tried it out. WOW, the improvement over the starter tool is amazing. The skew easily cuts through Cherry. I am not really good with a skew and was able to use the new skew immediately to skim cut the diameter of the wood. The finish was excellent and I did not have one catch. It would have been real smooth had I not had a death grip on it. LOL. I am totally impressed. The other awesome thing is that I ordered it on Friday night and received it on the following Tuesday. That's fast. Also, I sent a couple of questions by email and called to ask another one. The emails were answered quickly and accurately. The phone call was answered quickly and by a friendly voice. My question was answered in short order. Great company and quality.
