Sovereign Handles


Sovereign System Handles

The Sovereign handles are a key part to the Robert Sorby Sovereign system, without which the system would not work.

The Sovereign system handles have been designed in three sizes – 12″ (300mm), 16″ (400mm), and 22″ (560mm). All are beautifully engineered and designed for comfort and balance. The handles have a Softex nonslip grip which is soft to the touch yet hard wearing. Coupled with this they are balanced for stability and for prolonged use. At the head of the handle there are two locking screws to make sure that the various gouges and cutting tools are securely held in place.  There is a range of collets so that most of the Robert Sorby range of woodturning tools can be used with the Sovereign system.

  • The SOV-12S (12″) Sovereign handle is supplied with a SOV-CT tang collet and SOV-10 3/8″ collet.
  • The SOV-16S (16″) and the SOV-22S (16″) Sovereign handles are supplied with a SOV-10 3/8″ collet and the SOV-13 1/2″ collet.

You can purchase the various Sovereign Collets separately should you need to.

Robert Sorby have given this system a lot of thought and added various options. You can add a side handle and a counter balance weight, which are very useful when deep hollowing. There is also a threaded coupler so you can extend the length of the handle system if required.

The true beauty of the Robert Sorby Sovereign system is that you can just keep adding to it as your woodturning develops over time.
