The Robert Sorby Excelsior range of tools is a new range of high performance tools that will appeal to woodturning professionals, regular turners and those who enjoy turning very hard or abrasive woods. The Excelsior range has a range of hard working gouges and cutters that are manufactured from high grade HSS coated with the latest Titanium Nitride (TiN) plasma coating technology.
The breakthrough bonded coating provides extraordinary life to any cutting edge and reduces surface friction for a smoother more refined cut. When coated on flawless, triple tempered HSS, cutting edge hardness is increased to a Rockwell equivalent of between 85-90. The result is a tool that sharpens easily and has a durability and cutting edge that outperforms even tungsten carbide.
This range of cutters can be used in conjunction with the Robert Sorby Sovereign System which is a very versatile way of changing your tools.
