Crown Tools high-speed steel (HSS) woodturning tools have rapidly become the favourite brand of many discerning woodturners worldwide. Made from M2 HSS (Rockwell hardened Rc62/64) and fitted with ergonomically designed stained Beech handles with heavy-duty brass ferrules, these tools are beautifully effective, giving up to six times the life of traditional carbon steel chisels.

The variety of profiles are among the largest available from any manufacturer and include many unique tools which have been developed in conjunction with internationally recognised and awarded woodturners such as David Ellsworth, Alan Beecham, David Hout, Bill Jones and David Springett.

As with all Crown Tools - each chisel is inspected against relevant criteria prior to leaving the factory to ensure that you get high-quality tool. The flutes are well-polished, so the cutting edge is superior to most other brands on the market. The join of the blade to the handle is pressure tested to ensure the blade will never split from the handle and each blade is hardness tested along the full length of the chisel to ensure the correct hardness is found throughout the blade, greatly reducing the chance of the blade snapping under duress.

These quality controls also means that Crown are one of the few brands in the world where the chisel can be used over the full length of the blade.

Buying Crown Tools means you are investing in one of the very best quality ranges of turning tools in Southern Africa.
