Sorby's High Speed Steel Sovereign Ultima Cutter enhanced with a Titanium Nitride (TiN) coating to dramatically increase it's edge holding ability. This cutter slices through the wood rather than scraping and the clever design allows the shavings to clear without clogging.

It is equally effective on bowl grain work as well as end-grain projects.

Manufactured from high grade HSS, the cutter is able to make light or heavy cuts.

Only one third of the cutter is exposed at any time, so it can be rotated twice through 120 degrees before it needs to be re-sharpened.

Easy to sharpen with a diamond hone and can be easily removed if required. A cutter sharpening jig is available as an optional extra. Cutter is 1/2" in diameter. England

Sorby Excelsior Turning Tools
Robert Sorby's Excelsior tool range has been designed with the connoisseur woodturner and those who regularly turn hard woods in mind. A plasma bonded Titanium Nitride (TiN) finish layered over traditional triple tempered High Speed Steel (HSS) provides the perfect combination for tool longevity and edge retention.

In tests the TiN coating outperforms the hardest wearing steel tools and will even better tungsten carbide. Excelsior tools' cutting edge weigh in at an impressive Rockwell hardness equivalent of 80. They will outlast standard tools by four times - more than a match for popular cryogenically treated and powdered metal turning tools.

The combination of the bonded plasma TiN finish and HSS not only eliminates the possibility of chipping and brittleness often associated with harder metals, it also allows for easy sharpening.

The TiN coating also has the added advantage of reducing friction where metal meets wood. This is particularly effective when working with extremely hard and abrasive woods or when cutting through knotted burrs.

The result - spend more time turning and less time sharpening! England
