Robert Sorby Skew Chisels

Mastering the skew is what separates the beginner from the seasoned turner. This was even the topic of a famous Shakespeare play, "The Taming of the Skew". Robert Sorby has made the skew just a bit easier to master with their oval profile skews, which are considerably easier to control for an amateur. The skew is still the toughest turning tool to master, but it is also an essential tool. For spindle turning, the Robert Sorby round skews are the easiest to control. We recommend that if you are starting out you also order one of our turning videos along with your chisels.

Robert Sorby produce more turning tools every year than any one else. Robert Sorby's high speed steel turning chisels remains the bench mark by which all others are judged.
