Our Small Woodturning Skew - 3/4” x 9/32” x 9" - 1/2" Tang is made from the same M42 cobalt HSS. (formerly medium skew)
We offer three additional sizes: the largest skew at 1-5/16” x 3/8” x 9" with a tang that fits a 5/8” handle receiver; 1" x 9/32" x 9" with a tang that fits a 1/2” receiver; and 1/2" x 1/4" x x 8" with a tang that fits 1/2" receivers. 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 skew's 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.

This Small Skew is a great addition to my Large Skew from D-Way. The thickness and strength of the tool are outstanding. The way the Skews are shaped and sharpened has really proven to me that these are superior to other designs. Thanks for all the great products and work you all put in to D-Way Tools.

I have several D-way tools and handles. They are top notch. This skew chisel is no exception. Scary sharp right out of the package.

I use the skew for everything. Easy to use with nice geometry. Love the feel of taking nice cuts with curly shavings. No dust to clean.

Best lathe tools on the market! Is my second D-Way purchase. I cannot be happier with their products. Precision ground - and ready to use, these chisels are second to none! I will be ordering more in the future...

This is a beautifully made skew. As always it came sharp and ready to use. I have been using it to rough out Indian rosewood blanks that are dry and tough as nails and the skew peels it as if it were going through butter, leaving a finish which needs little to no sanding. Thanks again for a tool that makes my job a joy to do.

Works great for small detail work. Making wooden rings and wine stoppers and very useful. High quality as always.

I'm always amazed at the quality of these tools, they get better and better every tool I order. Always very sharp and they perform like no other. Dave's tools make me a better wood turner and I need all the help I can get! I look forward to my next purchase to build my arsenal of great tools. Thanks Dave to your attention to detail and the extra care that goes into making these tools great!
