    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 Finalizer works great. Remains sharp much longer than others I have from a different brand. Would recommend it and other Carter & Son tools. Wish I had discovered them several years ago.

    3/8" Low-Profile "roughing Gouge"

    Just like ALL CARTER AND SON TOOLWORKS tools I have been fortunate enough to purchase, this new 3/8" Low-Profile Roughing Gouge which is of the same extremely high quality and the small technical and extremely small turnings I can use this tool on, such as finials are absolutely incredible!!! I am EXTREMELY impressed with the cuts and carving on even very hardwoods that this new gouge can do on ebony & blackwood finials! As always, I am EXTREMELY impressed with CARTER AND SON TOOLWORKS, as well as their incredible and KIND Service! Ken McCloud
