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

Totally Terrific Tools

Incredible, personalized service. Everything made and sent as advertised, and, all tools sent fast and on time.

Delayed Delivery

I am still waiting for delivery and have ben informed on the USPS system, that after a long delivery wait, the package was delivered to the wrong address yesterday, and I am still waiting. There is no way to communicate directly with USPS since any communications must come from the sending Party. Please note I also ordered woodturning items from Robert Sorby and Axminister in the Uk on the same day, with the same address details, all which arrived within 1- 2 weeks. Axminister delivered in Thailand within 5 days. It seems your delivery supply chain is not working well and I would appreciate if you would follow up with USPS and let me know when this package will be delivered. With all other deliveries I receive advance notice by e-mail of any due customs tax - but in this case have no information yet.

Excellent tools

Had an 8 1/2" very dry walnut bowl on the lathe when the tools arrived. The 5/8" bowl gouge cleaned out the inside without needing sharpening once and the 1" scraper did a great job of cleaning up my tool marks. As I feel a need for new tools I know where I will be getting them. A tool review by Bob Hamilton (now deceased) made up my mind about getting your tools. Without ever having met me Bob drove 50 miles one way when I got my first lathe several years ago to show me how to use it so I respected his opinion.


I’m new to wood turning,but been woodworking for 50 years!! So I do know a high quality tool when I use them.And without a doubt this are high quality,the only thing bad about them is I have no excuse not to be a great wood turner!! Thank you for a great product I will be getting more in the future.

Quality workmanship and materials

I was happy to receive my tools. They were well packaged and they are amazing to use. My only complaint is the delay from when I placed my order to when I was notified my order had shipped. I will order from Carter and Son Toolworks again in the future.
