.44 Square Insert
The Woodpecker development team started the Ultra-Shear project with a commitment to produce the best carbide inserts for woodturning. They interviewed dozens of carbide manufacturers, seeking out a partner that recognized the unique requirements of turning tools. Any carbide blend can create a long-lasting edge, but for advanced performance at the lathe, you need a truly keen edge. That requires a carbide that doesn’t just last, but also is fine-grained enough not to crumble when formed to a really sharp angle. The result of months of testing and trials is a unique nano-grain carbide matrix, polished to a mirror-finish on the cutting surface and precision ground on the bevel. They are the sharpest, longest lasting inserts on the market.
