Just picked up the last two to complete the set. All are well balanced in the 8” handle, easy to use and sharpen, cut very clean and are a joy to use. They are the best beading tools available. Buy them, you won’t be disappointed.

I went to a club demo of basket illusion and wanted to try just beading a small bowl. I ordered the tools and they were here in no time. Great service. I also tried to bead some jewelry and the tools worked very well. After I watched your videos the tools worked even better! Thank you for a great tool and great service.

I've got 3 sizes of these beading tools and they add a nice quick finishing detail to most any turning. The usual D-Way expert finish is apparent on every tool. They work great!

I purchase these beading tools they work GREAT. Pretty much new to the world of turning. But I sure can add a lot of detail to my projects which everyone seems to like. These beading tools worked so well - I purchase the diamond tool. Wish I could effort all of them but only a few a a time. The M 42 steel is great. I did just purchase a 1/2 bowl gouge because it holds the edge.

Had previously tried beading with a spindle gouge and it was not good. These beading tools make all the difference. Now I put beads on everything as they are easy to use and that makes you want to try different things with them.

This beading tool gives a nice added touch to some bowls. I tend to use it on bowls with less grain to give them some character. I purchased the 8" handle with it and it's a perfect fit. Handle is heavy enough to give a solid feel. Great combination.

These beading tools are great. My first time trying D-way tools and I will come back for more when the time comes. They are high quality and work perfectly for making beads on my basket weave illusion bowls and forms. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for these.

I turn small bowls from soft wood and was surprised that I was able to get a clean bead. There is a learning curve but that is with any new tool you buy. I would recommend the product and company for quality and service.

Splendid tools. Arrive sharp with the cutting part protected.
Really like the shear cutting approach rather than scraping. Find it much easy to keep the tops on the beads than using the previous scraping tools.
Also like the fact they come un-handled. I'm six five and have hands the size of diner plates so like to turn my own handles to suit using One-Way Thread-Lok ferrules.
