    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

    Not quite what I was hoping for

    The tool steel is good. The way the tool is sharpened is a little weird and not something I can duplicate on my veri-grind system. The tool handle is too wide at the wide end and too narrow at the narrow end. Consequently the tool feels uncomfortable to use. This is a personal thing and not meant as a criticism.

    Picked up the spindle gouge to replace my old ones. Came sharp and ready for use. Cut through material like a hot knife through butter. Absolutely loved it.

    Just Stupid Good!

    I never write reviews, but every now and then a company deserves a pat on the back. I was looking for a roughing and spindle gouge that I never wanted to replace. I looked at all the usual suspects and by a stroke of luck I stumbled on a link to your firm. Research informed me of the unbelievable quality of materials - and they are American made. Initially I was concerned that the tools wouldn’t live up to the added cost, but I couldn’t be more wrong. I received them in just a few days and they are absolutely gorgeous! I’m accustomed to tools with wood handles, but the feel, grip and weight of my new ones converted me. I unpacked them and couldn’t quite decide if I wanted to take them to the lathe or shave with them. They are just crazy sharp. My recommendation to woodworkers is to spend the additional few dollars and get tools that are going to be there for a lifetime. They are well worth it. Your website is informative and provides plenty of info on keeping the tools sharp. Congratulations on providing an American product that lives up to everything I expect of my tools. And thank you for the wonderful service.

    The best spindle roughing gouge.

    I wanted the Carter and Son 7/8” Spindle Roughing Gouge for shaping on spindle work. I feel this is the safest tool on the market. I am super happy with the design and performance. It does everything I hoped for and holds an edge surprisingly long. I ordered it with a handle. I’ve seen photos and heard stories but was not prepared for my first look. These handles are works of art. Just beautiful! Thanks for bringing my turning to a new level. Ed
