Product Description

The large skew favored by Alan made in M2 high speed steel by Hamlet Tools of Sheffield, England.
Hamlet Lacer Skew 1 3/8" wide and 3/8" thick  in M2 HSS.  This is Alan's favorite size for doing a range of scale from micro-miniatures up to porch columns. This well balanced skew has great strength and lots of control, especially for harder woods. The area behind the short point (or heel) all the way to the ferrule is a fully rounded section that makes the tool glide and roll for some of the most common and difficult cuts with a skew. The handle is made of stained European beech. The edge is ground with a straight section that breaks into a curve--giving a number of advantages over a traditional ground skew. Check out the "Articles" section and "Off The Headstock" on Alan's site for advantages of this grind and methods of sharpening (www.alanlacer.com). As with all skews, it is not recommended for face-grain bowl turning. Made by Hamlet Craft Tools of Sheffield, England.

  3. An incredible skew! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Dec 2015

    I ordered this skew from the information given online. It is incredible. It is very easy to use in planing mode, which is all I have done with it so far. And it is quite a chunk of metal with a good feel, and yet I use it with no feeling of intimidation or fear. A novel skew experience for me. I am totally delighted with it.

    Great tool. Heavy weight. Takes place of a few tools.

  5. Its all in the grind 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Apr 2015

    I started out with a sorbey 3/4 inch tool. Figured if I had to buy just one tool at a time the skew is where I would start. No a horrible choice but it prompted the purchase of EWT carbide tools. Last Christmas I got this baby and wow what a difference! If you pay attention to the grinding lessons Mr. Lacer provides free of charge it will become your most useful tool. And yes the square section has become my favorite tool for sizing tenons on lidded boxes. Sure I could use a parting tool but why bother when this one already in my hands.
