      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

      Customer service gets top marks

      I had previously written a negative review due to cost-prohibitive charges added on by UPS when shipping to Canada. But I have had to retract my earlier statements.
      After learning about the extra brokerage fees, duty and taxes laid on by UPS, Carter & Son proved themselves to be a class act by reaching out to me to rectify the situation. There aren't many vendors out there who would show such consideration. This level of customer service is rare and is greatly appreciated. Thanks Paul Carter!

      I just used my new bowl gouge today. It is awesome. The workmanship is top notch and they make you feel like you are their only customer.

      Excellent Tool

      I used the 5/8 C&S Bowl gouge straight from the box, it performed flawlessly ,the wood I was working on was Olive and it was very hard!!! plus it had an awkward shape I only had to touch up the tool once on the grinding wheel and it went all the way to the end of the project, without further sharpening. I also turned an olive crotch very hard wood no sharpening at al l!!! Thank you Jan it was a pleasure doing business with you
      Keep up the excellent work

      5/8" bowel gouge what a dream

      Tried it out on an extremely dry and hard peace of mesquite. The gouge came with a vary sharp edge no need to sharpen like other gouges I've purchased. I was able to turn a 10" bowl with out re-sharpening. The handle was vary comfortable to use. The tool is well worth the cost. Thank you Carter and Sons
