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

What I was missing!

I have been turning mostly with carbide tools for many years. It’s been a good year for my tiny business so I decided an upgrade was in order. I should of made this switch sooner. The tools were beautiful out of the box. Sharp…and felt so good in my hands.

Great tools with great customer service

Tools are one of the best turning tools you will find in the market and will be the last set you will ever need, you can tell the quality just by holding them, for me more imprtant is the customer service, they have excellent customer service, contacted them first time to change shipping method, they did that with no extra cost and were very friendly , they kept me updated about the process and shipping expectations, really can't say enough good things about them, highly recommended

Not Convenient

Yes, i received your tools, vert nice,but.....it is truly not convenient to have to change out the tools constantly.
I believe that you know this already, and that is why you do not provide enough handles in your packages for each tool..
You want them yo purchase more handles separately.
Some companies at least have quick releases on their handles, so you dont have to unscrew 2 screws to change out handles.
Now i need 2 more 16" handles and 1 12"
and some adapters.
Maybe, i should have just bought thompsons individually.
Your tools are great, but absolutely not convenient unscrewing set screws all day
Thank you
Hiw about a decent price on 3 more handles and 3 adapters

Superb Quality

I decided to update and improve my turning tools and after considerable research I ordered and received the "Ultimate Tool Set" yesterday. Simply put, they exceeded my expectations. The quality of the workmanship is incomparable. Mirror finish and razor sharp cutting edges right out of the box. Thanks for building such high quality tools !
