  • The centerpiece of the Robert Sorby Sovereign Ultima modular system that lets you change from one Robert Sorby cutting tool to another quickly and easily (accessories sold separately)
  • Made of a durable combination of aluminum and alloy for strength, balance, and vibration dampening qualities
  • Comfortable, Softex grip Sovereign handle
  • Additional knurling provides a non-slip surface
  • Will accept turning chisels with a 5/8" diameter
  • Also accepts turning chisels with 3/8" and 1/2" diameters using the included collets
Robert Sorby Ultima Hollowing Tool
  • Small tool enables woodturners to produce hollow forms up to 11" (275 mm) (included with 16" handle)
  • Medium tool enables woodturners to produce hollow forms up to 16" (400 mm) (included with 22" handle)
  • Made from high-grade HSS
  • An articulating link which enables the turner to undercut the rims of projects and produce a variety of hollow form shapes from traditional vase to squashed form
  • Only one third of the cutter is exposed at one time, allowing you to rotate the blade twice through 120° before it needs to be sharpened
  • Designed for both wet and dry woods
  • Shaft can be extended with additional links (sold separately)
  • Cleverly designed shaving clearance which prevents clogging in normal use
  • A high-performance cutter system which slices through wood rather than scrapes
  • Adjustable cutter depth for heavy or light cuts with fine micro adjustment for extra finesse
  • Removable cutter can be easily replaced or sharpened with diamond hone
NOTE: American-made tools are measured by bar diameter while European brands are measured by flute size. Hence the 3/8" collet is designed for a European 1/4" gouge, and the 1/2" collet for a 3/8" gouge while a 1/2" gouge will fit directly into the handle.
