Which cutter material should I use?
Cutters for the Robert Sorby TurnMaster are available in Tungsten Carbide,High Speed Steel (HSS) and HSS coated with Titanium Nitride ("Excelsior").

Tungsten Carbide:
  • Designed to be disposable, these carbide cutters don't require any sharpening. (Carbide tips can be sharpened, but require specialized diamond abrasives).
  • Carbide stays reasonably sharp for a longer period of time, but because of its coarse grain, can never be sharpened as finely as HSS.
  • Gives extended cutting life with the toughest of woods.
  • Sharpens to 0.7 - 1 microns.
  • Hardness: 90 RC.
  • Material: micro grade tungsten carbide.

High Speed Steel (HSS):
  • Due to its finer grain structure, HSS holds a sharper edge than carbide, but will dull more quickly.
  • Very economical - can be re-sharpened multiple times with standard sharpening equipment.
  • Provides unmatched quality for the discerning woodturner keen on getting the greatest detail from their tools.
  • Sharpens to 0.2 - 0.4 microns.
  • Hardness : 62 RC.
  • Material: M2 HSS.

Titanium Nitride-Coated HSS (Excelsior):
  • These cutters provide the same advantages as HSS but give added longevity before sharpening is required.
  • No specialized equipment is required for sharpening.
  • Repeated sharpening does not remove the titanium nitride coating, it simply renews it.
  • Sharpens to 0.15 - 0.2 microns.
  • Hardness of titanium coating is up to 85 RC.
  • Material: Titanium nitride coated M2 HSS.
