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

Very Sharp

I don't know how it arrived so perfectly sharp. It has held an edge through a few bowls and still cuts nicely- more nicely than all of my other tools. I really fear sharpening it, but I will likely buy a diamond or CBN wheel to get that job done. I sharpen my other tools by hand, but I won't want to ruin any angle on this gouge. It is really high quality, came very sharp and ready to use, and must use a high quality tool steel. I wish all my other tools were like this one. Don't wait to buy it. It is a tool that will last and is well worth the extra cost.

Where to Start?

These lathe tools should be framed as works of art…..they are beautiful and amazing and enjoyable to use! My first lathe tools with Aluminum handles, so I wasn’t sure if I would like them or not….and sure enough I didn’t like them, I love them! I love the weight and yet they feel amazingly balanced…..a pure joy to use. So the tools are great, but let’s talk about this family…..all you have to do is call them once to figure out that this family is the real deal and what’s more ……they stand behind their products. Stop looking at other tools and buy from this family!

Very Nice tools

I have not been turning long, but have been doing woodwork most of my life. As an aircraft mechanic I require good tools to do my job, personally 80% of my tools are Snap-on. These are the Snap-On tools of the wood turners.Function, fit and finish is excellent.

Ultimate bowl set

Having once been in tool and die myself I can appreciate the skill and craftsmanship of this product, as well as the metals chosen to manufacture from. The quality just shines through. My experience was excellent from the beginning to the end. I look forward to purchasing my next tools through Carter and Son. Keep up the good work and God bless!
