 Product Description

We offer three additional sizes:  1” x 5/16” x 9" with a tang that fits a 5/8” handle receiver; 3/4” x 9/32” x 9" with a tang that fits a 1/2” receiver; and 1/2” by 1/4" x 8” with a tang that fits a 1/2” receiver.

  1. Large skew

    Posted by Paul Richard on Aug 26th 2022

    This tool is excellent quality and holds an edge well. At 3/8" thick, it is very solid with no vibration. This was my 3rd D-Way tool and I have since bought 3 more. D-Way tools are enjoyable to work with. They have super fast shipping at a reasonable rate. I would highly recommend D-Way tools.

  2. Skew chisel heaven

    Posted by Richie on Jan 4th 2022

    As a lover of skew chisels in general, and someone who does a lot of roughing work of all sorts of odd shaped logs, this tool is real timesaver.
    Love not having to breath in little chips any more cause it makes on continuous shaving. Will buy more products in the future.

  3. What a beast.

    Posted by Thorin on Dec 28th 2021

    I bought this with the plan to become more proficient with the skew. It has filled all my needs for spindle turning. The tool showed up very sharp and has been a joy to use.

  4. A jewelry fine finish

    Posted by Matt Burke on Dec 5th 2021

    This is a beautiful tool, the finish is flawless and the edge is the best I’ve ever had. Don’t let the size and heft scare you off, this tool is capable of both rapid material removal as well as the finest bead rolling.

  5. Dreaded Skew

    Posted by Ed on May 4th 2021

    I purchased this after watching the video. Smartest move I made. The skew is no longer scary. It is becoming my favorite tool. You have great tools.

  6. Best skew ever

    Posted by Richard S Leffler on Dec 14th 2020

    I have been turning since the age of 21 and I am now 64. I have worn out several skews (my favorite and a necessity). Never have I used such a fine piece of jeweled steel. Also may I add Dave or whomever sharpened this thing placed the exact same edge I've ground all mine to for years. I have used the dickens out of it and NOT dulled it yet. I will purchase tools from D-Way as needed. How can you go wrong? May I also add from Washington state to Ohio in three days??? Thank you, thank you.

  7. Very Nice Tool

    Posted by Tim Dunbar on Aug 20th 2020

    I am not very experienced with skews, but I really like this tool. It is a heavy tool and it is very efficient at removing wood...I am using it more and more.

    D-Way Tools is great to work with and the shipping is very fast.

  8. Best skew on the market

    Posted by Jeff Peters on Jul 17th 2020

    This is my 2nd D-Way Tool. The customer service means as much to me as the product, that's why I asked for the large skew for my birthday, it won't be my last D-way tool.

  9. Man, this tool makes me look good!

    Posted by Robert A on Jun 25th 2020

    The old timers in my turning club have a skewed opinion, as in Skew Skew Skew. So I decided to get a good one to get rid of my DeWalt one.

    I compared this skew and price with the one from Carter. They are both M42 HSS but the D-Way is wider and is nicely thick. And it costs less especially if you turn your own handle for it.

    My time turning and finishing the outside of bowls, truing faces and rolling large beads is significantly reduced. On light wood the shavings float in the air.

    When I am having a tear out problem, I hone the edge of the tool and gently scrape the surface. It almost always removes the cloudy area, except on the really hard woods. Knots and hard bumps are easily removed using the flat end point of this hefty but agile tool.

    As the other reviewers say, this is now my go-to. There will be more D-Way tools in my future.

  10. A beast of a skew

    Posted by John R on May 24th 2020

    This is my new go-to tool. I'm a big fan of the skew, and this is now the first tool I reach for. I like the weight of it that makes it easy to control. Shipped quickly, well packaged and razor sharp.
