    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

    Excellent tool.

    This gouge is every bit as good as I expected it to be. Arrived sharp and ready to use. Well balanced, and a pleasure to hold as well as use. It was a little big for my project, but it will be greatly utilized on future projects. Carter and Son should check into the possibility of making a smaller roughing gouge, maybe along the 1/2" to 3/4" size for smaller items, such as pens or spindle Christmas ornaments. I would buy one of those too. Good job guys!

    7/8 spindle roughing gouge

    Building a table and my old roughing gouge had seen better days so I ordered one from Cater and Son and it was a joy to use, “ should have ordered one years ago”, as usual the tool was ready to use out of the box. I Was able to turn 4 maple legs and spent more time turning and less time sharpening. As always the wonderful folks at Carter and Son provide great service. If your thinking about buying Carter and Son tools all I can say is stop thinking and place your order. You won’t be disappointed.

    Excellent quality!

    I have the best impressions about the Spindle Roughing Gouge with the the 20" handle. The tool does not need sharpening after two weeks of intensive work. It perfectly balanced. The round tang is reliable and safe. It's the best tool I've ever come across. I recommend it to everyone. Excellent quality!
