    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

    3/4" Skew? Nope, a 3/4" Negative Rake Scraper...YES!!!

    I tend to do a lot of smaller work and often wish for a smaller radius Negative Rake Scraper. I contacted Carter & Son and asked if I bought a 3/4" Skew if they would grind it to a Negative Rake Scraper...the answer was yes and the Icing on the cake no additional charge for the custom grind!

    I love the skew. Good weight and balance and holds a nice edge. I wish you offered a 5/8” skew too.

    3/4" skew

    Excellent tool.

    3/4" Skew Chisel

    The tool is expertly machined and sent sharp and ready to use. I like the rounded edges on the blade and the radius cutting edge is user friendly. The shearing action from this tool creates a very smooth surface that requires little, if any, sanding. Just an extremely high quality, well balanced and finely machined tool that is a pleasure to use. Thank you Carter and Son for producing such an excellent product for wood turners!

    Immediately became my favourite skew.

    In the flesh it looked even better than on the web site so I couldn’t wait to try it.
    Assembly was easy & from the moment I unpacked it could feel & sense the wonderful design & quality of my new skew.
    Straight to my lathe to make some shavings - result = AWESOME!
    My skew was sharp & ready to go. Just immediately felt good in my hand & performed great.
    I have quite a collection of tools that I have accumulated over many years, but none compare to this new tool! If I could, I would trade them all for a complete set from Carter & Sons! Thank-you for my favourite skew!
