High quality woodturning tools from Hamlet Craft Tools, based in Sheffield, United Kingdom, which is synonymous with fine hand tools, cutlery and steel manufacturing. Some gouges are also offered unhandled which can be used with the Multi-Handles offered from Hamlet and Simon Hope. The Multi-Handles offers more weight which is ideal for bowl gouges to reduce vibration. Shorter Multi Handles can also be selected for smaller lathes with limited swing over the bed.
A selection of CRYO double ended gouges designed by Simon Hope and manufactured by Crown is also offered. The combined effect of the cryogenic processing is to produce a refined crystal structure in your hand tool that will give a lifetimes service by producing a blade that will retain its edge longer and give a superior ‘feel’ in use.
Multi handles are offered for turners who prefer a heavier handle for better control, for use with the hollowing bars offered by Creative Turning (or your own hollowing bars) or for turners wanting to manufacture special tools like pointing tools. The multi-handles are also ideal to use with double ended gouges.
Multi-handles from Hamlet and Simon Hope are offered.
