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

Great value

I purchased the 20" handle to accept various 3/4" tools for turning hollow vessels. The handle feels good and solid, and really exceeded my expectations. Purchase was made because I was flying to an out-of-state event and could not bring my captive bar apparatus. I have 25+ years woodturning experience.

The Perfect Tool Handle

I really like the Carter and Son tool handles! I love the tools as well!
They are balanced in my hand, with a nice light, but sufficient, weight. The contour of the aluminum handle fits nicely in my hand; smooth but machine textured on the appropriate areas.
It's great that they offer different lengths of handles with one consistent bore. There are adapters to use for the different shank diameters of their available tools.
Less important from a practical standpoint, but they really just look amazingly beautiful lined up on my tool cart, ready to go to work!
I've purchased the 20", 16" and 12" sizes. I will undoubtedly buy more of each as I add to my Carter and Son tool collection.

These handles accent the tools perfectly. The weight is excellent and they are secure and attractive.
