Robust woodturning tools are manufactured by Robust from premium HSS (high speed steel) that has been treated with our proprietary Nitriding process. Nitriding is not a coating or plating, but a diffusion wherein extra carbon and nitrogen are added to the base metal. This zone is up to .002″ deep. The result: significantly improved edge holding and reduced sharpening. Learn more about the Nitriding process used by Robust tools here.
