    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

    Easier to use skew. Very comfortable handle. Shipped quickly. High quality.

    Skewed Right

    To many the skew is a difficult tool to learn to use. I recently purchased a 3/4" skew and have found it to be a very versatile tool. I am still learning its secrets. The way i use it the grind is perfect. I have a 1-1/4" skew from another manufacturer, the interesting thing is that particular tool, was described by a "famous turner" as a negative bevel scraper. The grind is not the same and its use seems to be somewhat limited due to the sharp corner on the down side of the tool. Have thought of regrinding that tool to reflect the style grind used on the Carter and Son tool, I think it would make the larger tool more useful. I am learning these tools from Carter and Son are truly the standard.

    Don't fear the skew anymore

    I can't put this tool down. Sure changed my mind about skews. Carter and Son are the best tools I own. GREAT!! customer service on top of that.

    The absolute best skews I've ever used.

    I have been turning for a very long time. I started out with the old carbon steel tools and over the years worked my way up to HSS tools. Recently I purchased the 1" skew from Carter and Sons and was so impressed I now have all 3 of their skews and the low profile 3/4" spindle gouge. The quality of all the tools is unsurpassed. The extra mass that is incorporated into their tools reduces vibration and the M42 HSS holds an edge much longer than anything I've ever used. Great work guys!!! I now have a tool maker I can count on.

    Beats HSS and Carbide

    I've owned and used many types of Skews and Gouges made with High Speed Steel (HSS) and Carbide and have been dissatisfied with their performance. The HSS tools became dull too quickly and I would have to stop and sharpen them at the grinder just when I was in the "groove". The Carbide tools have chipped when I hit a bushing or knocked the tool on the lathe which meant either discarding it or spending a lot of time at the diamond stone getting an edge back.

    I just finished using the 3/4 inch Carter and Sons, M42 steel Skew, turning Paduk wood and I'm extremely satisfied with this American made tool. In fact I just ordered another C&S Spindle Gouge. I truly appreciate quality tools. After 50 years in my woodworking hobby and 35 years as a NASA Contractor Engineer, I know quality when I use it. This company's products exhibit the American quality I've been missing for a long time. Thank you Carter and Sons.
