 Product Description

Our Medium Woodturning Skew - 5/16" x 1" x 9" with a 5/8" Tang is made from the same M42 cobalt HSS.

We offer three additional sizes: the large skew, at 3/8” x 1-5/16” x 9" with a tang that fits a 5/8” handle receiver; small at 9/32” x 3/4 x 9" with a tang that fits a 1/2” receiver; and the detail skew at 1/4" x 1/2" x 8" 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.

  1. All D-Way tools are super sturdy and well thought out.

    Posted by Dionigio designs on Dec 31st 2020

    I started buying D-way tools shortly after I started turning and shortly after that I quit buying them any where else. Great designs, great steel and so sturdy - these curved skews are essential to my bowl making. I have all three sizes and use them all often. For inside transition from wall to floor, I can quickly make any speed bumps disappear. Well Done Sir!!!

  2. Simply the Best

    Posted by Fred Guendel on Nov 22nd 2020

    An excellent and versatile tool. The folks at D-Way start with superb steel for turning tools and spend the extra time to get all of the details right. I own a larger and smaller skew from different makers; this is the one I reach for most every time.

  3. Fantastic

    Posted by Mike Harris on Nov 17th 2020

    Incredible quality, what a fantastic tool.

  4. One more awesome tool.

    Posted by Kurt on Feb 9th 2020

    Good tools - are a joy to use. American made is another reason to choose them. I’ve never regretted buying a D-Way tool. I’ve spent a lot on others that I don’t use anymore.

  5. A key asset to your turning tool collection

    Posted by Rick Norrie on Jan 7th 2020

    Extremely pleased with a sharp cutting tool coupled with a video demonstration on how to properly use the tool. As said, practice, practice, practice, improves skills and turner confidence.

  6. Working good

    Posted by Steven on May 27th 2019

    I have not turned in 29 years and wanted to get started again. My friend had some of your tools and I tried them Thought I woulds start out using them. I only had a little bit of time to use them but it's working great.

  7. 3/4”skew

    Posted by John D from NH on May 24th 2019

    Bought this skew to make planing and paring cuts on production runs of spinning tops. Been avoiding the skew as a front line tool for 30 years but felt this would be the best tool for the job so I went for it. Worked great and will definitely find more ways to use it now that I have a feel for it. It’s another well balanced and engineered tool and a welcome addition to my almost completed collection of D-Way tools. Buy this tool if you want the best, you won’t be disappointed.

  8. Review of 3/4 inch skew

    Posted by Dennis on Apr 14th 2019

    I already have a large skew from Dway and love it. So buying the 3/4 inch skew
    was a no brainier.. Dave's products are excellent.

  9. Best Lathe Tool

    Posted by John Campbell on Feb 28th 2019

    I recently purchased the med. skew and handle from you and I then watched the on how to use it. I could not be happier, I use the skew more now than my roughing gouge. These tools are great and this won't be my last purchase. The videos are also top notch.

  10. Great tool!

    Posted by Phil Burns on Aug 22nd 2018

    Dway tools are simply the best. This skew is made from very robust steel and cuts wood like a hot knife trlhrough butter. And the design of the tool is fantastic. Frankly Dway tools are so good I no longer buy anything else. I’m presently on the process of replacing all my current turning tools with Dway
