New M42 Stay sharp tools

M42 Stay Sharp tools made by Hamlet to Glenn’s sharpening specifications set a new standard for quality and performance in woodturning tools. Unlike other types of high speed/PM tool steel that sacrifice extreme edge retention for the ability to be honed to a keen edge, or vice versa, M42 Stay Sharp tools provide both for optimum performance you can count on.

Made in England

·       M42 ‘super steel’ for optimum edge holding ability

·       Can be honed to a razor sharp edge

·       Parabolic flute profile for easier sharpening and superb chip clearing

·       Double bevel grind for faster, cleaner cuts

·       Supplied with hand-polished Ash handle

·       Sharp, ready to use out of the box

This gouge is profiled with a parabolic flute which is the only flute profile you will find on any of my bowl gouges. Far easier to sharpen than the V or U shaped gouges on the market. This gouge will bring a bowl blank quickly to shape. It is sharpened to a 55 degree bevel angle.
