A delicately balanced tool essential to the spindle turners kit.

Delicately balanced tools that are the planes of the spindle turners kit. Designed at Robert Sorby, the profile allows the tool to glide effortlessly along the tool rest without fear of the edges dragging on the rest. They will smooth cylinders, clean the end grain of spindles, cut shallow curves, beads, pummels and v-cuts, e.g. stair balustrade and chair legs. These tools are indispensable if a fine finish is required from the tool.

Sorby Skew chisel
Use for pen making. The oval body is a plus. Also have the 1/4 Sorby micro for fine detail work. The hold an edge nicely.

Excellent
First time using an oval skew as I am new to woodturning and an oval skew didn't come with the sets that I previously purchased. I love this tool! It is easier to use than the flat skew I used previously, I've been away from my lathe for a couple of weeks, but plan to get back to using this tool a.s.a.p.

Great skew
I was looking for a larger skew to help me with long tapers and the Sorby 1" oval is just the thing. As with all my Sorby HSS tools, this one is well made and well balanced and looks good. It sharpens easily and holds an edge. I find Sorby HSS turning tools a good choice providing quality at affordable prices.

skew it oval style
I started with the oval skew, and love it, I've tried flat skews and they just don't work as smooth for me. Sorby quality is a given

This works great for turning beads in to a piece of stock. If you need to turn narrow beads, I would recommend the 1/2" version. The 3/4" works just fine for any beads wider that 3/8".
