Overview

Designed for efficiently shear scraping the exterior of your next bowl to remove imperfections and refine the surface. The long grind, with a convex surface, helps make contact with the exterior of the bowl.

  • Shipped sharp with the grind found at Mahoney’s lathe (easily duplicated using a Wolverine jig)

  • Superior M42 high speed steel with a 10% cobalt content, for unparalleled edge holding 
  • M42 HSS' unique durability and razor edge mean less grinding and cleaner cuts
  • Unmatched flute polish boosts the razor edge and provides efficient chip flow
  • Put comfort and control first with an interchangeable aluminum handle
  • Handcrafted in the USA, and backed by a lifetime guarantee and hassle-free returns

  • 16” or 20" x 3/4” handle & 5/8” adapter

    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

    Outstanding service

    Hello I recently had a shear shaper develope a chip on the cutting edge. After sending a few pictures and a brief description of what seemed to have happened. I was promptly contacted within 12 hrs which in itself is great seeing I'm in a time zone which is 4hrs ahead of there home base . After sending g my mailing info I recieved another email to inform me that a replacement had all ready been mailed to my address . To be 100% truthful I had totally forgotten since my purchase of there guarantee and was very happy to learn of it.in a world of so much poor customer service on the market it's nice know that there are still folks who stand behind there products. Looking forward to expanding my Carter and sons tool selection

    Another outstanding tool

    Came ready to use, turning a walnut platter that
    started out as a log from a friend. Great shavings.

    Mahoney Parabolic Shear Shaper

    First of all, I am a big fan of Carter and Son Tools! The Mahoney Parabolic Shear Shaper is a very solid well made tool. The tool I received had a notch in the right wing that I could stick my fingernail into. It is fixable, just not the quality I'm used to. Don't worry I will buy tools even though I have 12 turning tools from Carter and Son already.
