The Axe Tools from Carter Products line of carbide tools were designed with input from experienced woodturners. They are available in Full Size and a smaller Hybrid Size. The Hybrid Tools are sized for use on smaller lathes and projects. The tools come with color coded ferrules to identify the cutter type.
The Axe™ Hybrid Tools have a 1/2" diameter by 4" stainless steel shank, with a 13" handle. The shank is set an additional 4" into the handle. The carbide cutters are smaller (except the dia. point tool).
The Axe Tools are available with a Square Cutter (blue) (also includes a radius square cutter), a Round Cutter (Red) or a Diamond cutter (yellow). The carbide cutters are replaceable when they dull so no sharpening is ever needed.
