>I'm planning to order some Robert Sorby woodturning tools from www.thebestthings.com (They seem to have the best prices - if anyone has a cheaper source, I'm interested). This web site lists the standard Sorby tools as well as the Sorby Gold Series. According to the web site, the Gold Series tools have a "titanium coating to increase the edge retention by approximately 3 times over that of the standard models." Is it worth it to pay approximately $5-$10 per tool to buy the Gold Series? Thanks.
