    The 1/16" Parting Tool by Carter and Son Toolworks is a superb tool made from M42 high speed steel for optimum edge holding ability and its ability to be sharpened to a keen edge.

    The tapered design of the 1/16" parting tool makes it the strongest narrow parting tool you can buy. The multi-stepped profile provides strength and rigidity for a rock solid feel and vibration-free cutting.

    The 1/16" Parting Tool allows you to make a parting cut 1/16" of an inch wide up to 2" deep. By making a clearance cut to widen the groove, you can make deeper cuts.

    M42 high speed steel is considered by many top turners to be the "holy grail" of tool steel for woodturning.  Unlike other types of high speed steel that sacrifice extreme edge retention for the ability to be honed to a keen edge, or vice versa, M42 offers both for optimum performance you can count on.
  • Extreme edge retention
  • Sharpens to a very keen edge
  • Sharp and ready to use straight from the package
  • Made in the USA

Comments On Mar 31, 2019:This thing is amazing. Setting precise references at 1/16", parting, easy tenons. Just wonderfully designed and crafted. It seemed expensive when I ordered it, but it was well worth it.
