Robert Sorby Sovereign System Turnmaster and Hollowing Tools
The Robert Sorby Sovereign System is a modular system that interchangable handles and other components, for a flexible and higly configurable system of turning tools. The Turnmaster tools all use interchable tips, that can be sharpened, or treated as disposables. The tips are available in high speed steel (HSS), titanium nitride coated, or carbide, depending on your preference. We find that for most people the HSS are the easiest to sharpen and are the best all around choice. If you are working with exotic woods with a high silica content, the carbide cutters are probably your best choice. The titanium nitride coated cutters are similar to the HSS cutters, but have a hard coating on the edge which give them greated edge retension.
