This Woodturning Parting Tool - 1/2" Tang is made from M 42 Cobalt the cutting portion is 3 1/2" inches long, has a 1/2” tang and is tapered from .080 thousandths to .060 thousandths and the taper helps to prevent binding. Tha cut is very clean.
I recommend either the 12" or 8" handles.

The best I have ever used. Even a novice like me can make clean professional looking cuts with this tool in the hardest of woods.

I was intrigued when I first viewed this, Dave doesn't make any bad tools but I wondered how everyone else had designed their parting tools so differently. It turned out they are all wrong and once again Dave is right in every way.
Apart from being made of the M42 steel which holds a fantastic edge, this tool cuts cleanly with no burn or tightening up. Every cut is so crisp and easy to carry out. I am almost tempted to just part things off for pure enjoyment now. I had 4 parting tools, now I will only be using one.
Did I forget to say how comfortable and adaptable this is with Dave's handles? Yes, well it is, comfortable balanced and a joy to use.

I've owned other parting tools by respectable makers and D-Way greatly exceeds them

This is an excellent addition to your tool arsenal. The precision of the machining is great. Getting a 1/8" cut and still providing thinner easing on the back is amazing. Super clean cuts. Of course, the quality of the steel in all Dave's tools contributes to the strength and sharpness.
The thin cut on this tool is a big advantage on small turnings and on boxes where I want to keep the grain pattern across the body and lid. I'm not sure I'll have reason to go back to my older Parting Tools.

After watching Dave demo this tool at the recent Oregon Symposium, I bought this even though I had another I had made myself. After making a number of repetitive spindle pieces I find that this parts off without tear out as long as you are careful at the very last bit. This is a first for me. Keep this tool sharp which is easy to to and it will cut cleanly for you on end grain.

I have used several parting tools, mostly diamond profile and home made from lumber mill bandsaw blades. This 1/8" taper grind tool with the nose profile it has is the first tool I have used that will part off cleanly.

I really like this parting tool, and it works great. I would like it more if it had a round tang which would make it easier to mount in a handle

As a new woodturner, I am slowly getting used to the tools of the trade. After studying the tools of the trade in depth, I decided to go with D-Way. I just received the new thin parting tool and am amazed at the ease of use and the fact that the tool is tapered and does not bind. As with my other D-Way tools this tool deserves an A+.

Superior design and quality!!! I was in the need of a thin parting tool and after my first purchase of a couple of beading tools, I didn't hesitate to order this along with the 12 inch handle. I'm hooked on D-Way tools and will definitely be adding more to my collection.
