Our Detail Woodturning Skew - 1/4” x 1/2” x 8" with 1/2" Tang is made from the same M42 cobalt HSS. (Formerly known as the small skew)
We offer three additional sizes: the large skew, 3/8” x 1-5/16” x 9" with a tang that fits a 5/8” handle receiver; medium at 5/16" x 1" x 9" with a tang that fits a 5/8” handle receiver; and a small skew at 9/32" x 3/4" x 9" with a tang that fits a 1/2” receiver. All are radiused on the heel-edge of the shank to slide easily across the tool rest. The long point edge is machined flat. The short point edge has a machine radius to facilitate rolling beads. All sharp edges on the length of the shank have been softened. The skews bevels have been pre-sharpened and polished to a mirror finish, ready to make shavings.
Great tool for roughing out spindle work and beautiful clean cuts.

I have this detail skew and their large skew. The finish is superb and the edge is awesome. They retain the keenest edge and are easy to touch up with an 800 grit CBN wheel. Just buy it; that’s the strongest recommendation I can give. I’ll only buy D-Way tools!
