Robert Sorby 1/16" Slim Fluted Parting Tool (832H)
This features a radically new and unique cutting profile with a blade profile of only 2mm or 1/16" The long bevel has a flute which is the cutting face. The small bevel is the sharpening face. When parting off this unique arrangement causes the tip to always cut at a shear cutting angle of 45°, producing a finish without equal from a parting tool, virtually eliminating the need for sanding. Made from high speed steel and then properly hardened and tempered. It will keep a sharpened edge about six times longer than carbon steel and resist "blued" softening from overheating during grinding or from heavy turning. Comes with hard White Ash handles and solid brass ferrule.
Blade width: 1/16" (2mm)
Blade length: 6-1/2"
