TURNING TOOLS

 

Originating in Egypt, practiced by the Greeks and Romans, and popular among kings, princes and even queens in the seventeenth century, wood turning is one of the oldest trades on record. Designed for most uses with a lathe, our wood turning tools perform a wide range of functions.

 

The blade is made of German chrome vanadium steel, and is forged and heat - treated. It has a Rockwell hardness (HRc) of 57 - 60. The handle is made of American or European hardwood.
