Oval Skew | Hamlet Craft Tools | Woodturning Chisels
Hamlet Oval Skew Chisel.
The oval skew is designed with oval sides to allow ease when moving along the tool rest.
Unlike the standard skew the sides are curved, reducing any catches on your tool rest. This allows for a smooth, continuous cut without any square edges catching.
Skew Chisels are used mainly in spindle turning for cutting beads, planing, V-cuts and cleaning up end grain. But they have many more uses and can be used for many more things whilst woodturning.
Made from M2 High Speed Steel they retain a sharper edge for longer than most. Cutting down your sharpening time whilst still giving a great cut.
