Is anyone using the "Captain Eddie Castelin" tools (both the bars and the carbides)? I don't think they are quite as nice as what Rus has been putting together, but they seem to be pretty affordable. Just curious if anyone has some feedback to offer.

Some people pay more for a piece of mind, and some people pay less and enjoy the craftsmanship , thats the beauty of having a choice

RusDemka made me a steel holder to hold one of Capn Eddie's "rounded square" cutters; it works very well.

I've never used an EWT so I can't compare to their cutters or handles.

I also have one of the Rockler round carbide tools (clone of the Hunter tools), this has a "dished" carbide with a much sharper cutting edge angle, it behaves more like a bowl gouge than a scraper (you have to rub the bevel).

I have compared both CapnEddie and EWT cutters and they perform the same, the square and radius square cutters are identical to Eddies, only difference is Eddies cutters are polished and EWT cutters are not. Not much Difference between my tools and capneddies, he uses #10 screws, i use #8. i like to have the screw cap hidden in the cutter <- My prefference. Capneddie does not make the mini set "i dont think" and he doesnt make the diamond detailer in iether full size or mini. Performance wise between the two, i would have to say they are the same, get them were the price is better, i barely make a profit on these tools, i just offer a cheaper solution for people on a budget like me..
