    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

Great Edge Holding

Comments On May 26, 2020:There isn't that much to say about a spindle roughing gouge, but the M42 steel in this one holds an edge really well even on tough woods like Mesquite and Texas Ebony.

A great tool

Comments On Mar 12, 2018:I have been wood turning for less than a year and started with a set of low end tools. I have been replacing them a tool at a time. All I can say about Carter and Sons tools is WOW! They cut great. I will be purchasing additional tools in the future.
