Robert Sorby's Sovereign Deluxe 6-Piece set includes six of Sorby's most popular turning tool shanks along with the enormously versatile 12'' Sovereign handle and 4'' extension. In one simple kit, you get the tools for most basic turning operations, plus two handle lengths. Watch the included Starting Out Woodturning DVD for a nice primer on using your new tools. A handy credit-card-sized diamond honing stone is even included for putting a nice edge on once the set has had some use.
