The AXE™ tools by Carter Products are the next generation in replaceable carbide cutter turning tools. Innovative features include an axe shaped handle, shear scraping ability and improved overall design at a price that’s 25% lower than the leading brand of carbide cutter tools.
The AXE™ Square tool includes two 15mm razor sharp replaceable carbide cutters: A square cutter designed for roughing blanks and a slightly radiused cutter that's perfect for general purpose cuts and outside curves as well as for cutting plastics and artificial materials that can be finicky. The milled flat on the underside of the tool shaft keeps the tool steady when scraping while the radiused corners provide a smooth transition when rolling the tool side to side for making shear scraping cuts when needed. Flats on the butt of the axe shaped handle provide reference for your hands as to the cutter position. By placing your thumb on one flat with your fingers across the other on the underside of the handle, you know the cutter is at about 45 degrees and ready to make a shear scraping cut. When you buy an AXE™ tool, you’ll get the finest, most user-friendly replaceable carbide cutter tool that money can buy at an exceptional price! Made in the USA.
