    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

    The double barreled resolver like all Carter & Son tools is very high quality. This tool is great for detail work and doing the final finishing cut on your turned item.
    I recommend this tool to other turners.

    I lost my old one in moving my shop! The wait was excruciating to get my new one

    Not Carter and Sons fault, but lord I missed having it while I waited. Never thought I would mis a singe tool so much, but it lives on my lathe bed and gets used at some point on almost every piece. So happy to have it again!

    Great tool for details

    Just used my DoubleBarreled Resolver for the first time and could not be happier with the results. It’s the perfect tool for some of those final project details. As always the quality of the tool speaks for itself, and sharp right out of the box. This is my 10th Carter and Son tool and all I can say is you will not be disappointed with any of their tools.

    Double Barrel Resolver

    Great tool steel and workmanship. The 3/8 diameter is small for my needs. I end up working out over the tool rest because of my Shopsmith so I get vibration.
