Phil, I bet Ed, already has one.   Roll Eyes I have an Ultra Shear parting tool like that and it works well. I have not tried to sharpen it yet so I don't know how that is going to be. I sharpen my carbide bits with diamond plates.

Thanks Phil, so thoughtful.
It's not ridiculously priced BUT it does have some other issues. Grin

When I look at the handle, all I see is comfort  Roll Eyes
"We patterned the handle and blade after thin-kerf parting tools first made popular in England in the 1980s."
If the original was uncomfortable and too small, what do you get when you copy it?

"The tall blade resists twisting and bending. The short blade length and knife-style handle give you comfortable, confident control over the cut. "
Tall blade?, there is a split in the center to accept the insert. This creates a weak spot, only the bottom half of the blade is taking the stress to resist and twisting bending.
Also, as I've mentioned before, longer handles give you more control.

Thanks but I'll stick with my Henry Taylor Thin kerf parting tool, 1/16" blade, 5" long blade with a 15" handle. Human, not hobbit sized.

If I do get around to getting another parting tool, it will be the one from D Way.

My favorite parting tool is one I made.  The blade is a "T" shaped metalworking cut-off blade know as "P" type blade.  Because the blade is only full width at the very top, pinching in the cut is waaay less then with a plain flat blade.

How did you make the handle to fit the blade?

IMHO a waste of money. it looks like the cutting bit is held in place by friction and can only cut about 1/8" deep then you hit the flared out sides. and a stainless steel blade insert for $19.99?? good luck sharpening that baby. easy wood tools carbide bits are only 16.99 of course, they do not make a parting tool, but then neither is this a parting tool, unless, you consider it a "parting with your money" tool.

Jeff, i used those blades on steel for years. Standard cut off tooling, but never saw a T socket like you show??. Where did you get it? Thanks.

Had one for a few years. Very nice tool. The Thompson parting tool although thicker is also very nice.

Made in two pieces, then welded together.  Excess weld turned off to make it look nice...lol

Home-made, George.  Probably unnecessary, but I enjoy making that sort of thing as much as wood turning.  Might work just as well with the blade held in a section of pipe, sorta smashed flat on the end!  Smiley

David, I wonder if those photos/drawings are ass backwards?  As shown it would be a pretty useless tool. 
I used similar type of "cut-off" blades as a machinist for many years.  The inserts are carbide, and wider than the blade, so the depth of cut is only limited by the length of the blade.  The inserts ARE held by friction/pressure from the top part of the blade.  ...they're very good tools, and the inserts DO NOT not come out without using the "wrench" made specifically for that purpose.
