    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

    Good solid tool

    I like the metal handles. Mine arrived sharp and shipping was only a couple of days. Would recommend them. I have bought two otherCarter gouges which is why I bought another. They are very expensive.

    Nice tool. Like all of my Carter and Sons Tools (I have 4)

    What can I say. I love the handles. And the steel stays sharp a long time. That's why I buy them. Yes I can sharpen a bowl gouge in under a minute but every minute sharpening is time I'm not turning.....

    Very Satisfied/Well made…the width will allow my to extend further than often possible into a bowl.

    Pleased. Arrived sharp. Waiting to mount in my glued up handle…Searching now for more of their tools, “that I cannot do without”

    Love the Carter and Sons Bedan!

    Wish I bought it sooner! I primarily use it to make a perfectly square tenon and it does that job very well!

    3/8" Bedan

    Arrived with a perfect grind, sharp. I need a bit more training on it as I just got it. It feels very nice and well balanced. I couldn't be happier with this tool. I am a bit surprised that at our club we don't use it more, it is actually very versatile. The M2 steel quality is amazing, even with some harder wood it stays sharp for quite long. Carter once again delivered.
