The Axe Tools from Carter Products are a new line of carbide tools designed with input from woodturners. The Round Axe Tool is good for the inside or outside of bowls and can also be used for some spindle work. The special features include a round stainless steel shank that won't rust and has a flat on the bottom to allow a smooth transition from standard cutting to shear scraping by angling the cutter. Also included is a specially shaped handle with vertical flats at the back to indicate the angle of the cutter visually or by feel.
Three different Axe Carbide Tools are available with different colored ferrules for easy identification in the shop. Tools available are Square, Round, and Diamond Shaped. The Square Tool also includes an additional Rounded Square Cutter.
