    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
  • Professionally sharpened at Craft Supplies USA
  • Sharp and ready to use straight from the package
  • Made in the USA
