Standard Parting Tool - Used to part the finished project off from the waste material, the parallel sides make for a rigid tool that handles well. The 1/8" -3mm tool reduces the amount of waste, vital if the timber is an expensive, exotic one. It also makes for a fine detailing tool, e.g. beads and fillets.


Diamond Parting Tool - The special profile of this tool reduces the risk of binding in the cut. It also reduces the amount of heat build up caused by friction, thereby lessening the chance of burning the bottom of the parted project.

Great for detail work!
Just what I needed. A thinner parting tool and another option for detail work. This is a great addition to my tool options.

Best all-round tools out there!
I've been using Robert Sorby turning tools almost exclusively for
over 30 years and recommend them highly. The Sorby Diamond
Parting Tool is a staple of my most frequently used tools. The
diamond ridge virtually eliminates catches, and cross functions as a detail scraper and shear. Long lasting and holds an edge.
None better!

As far as I can tell it's good.
I'm new to wood turning, and I was looking for an inexpensive parting tool. This was within what I was willing to pay. It works as well as I imagined it would. Unfortunately, with nothing to compare it to that's about all I can say about it.

Great tool
This parting tool does not cut like a just sharpened parting straight from the tormek, but almost as easy & clean. But, it doesn't seem to ever dull and like the energizer bunny, just keeps on cutting all day without slowing down, I wish I had discovered this parting tool years ago. I would recommend this tool to anyone that does a lot of lathe work.

lasted a year
Out of my collection of various chisels this was one of my favorite and most used, however this past November in a non- stressful turn it suddenly snapped at the handle. Since I had this issue I replaced with another make, but it doesn't respond like the Sorby. Still hesitant after this experience.
