    There are many tool supplier catalogs on line. Most address a large range of turning tools in a manner that helps the user select the correct material and shape for a specific job. I suggest you go and locate several of these catalogs and see what is on offer. Here is a link to an excellent first catalog <http://ww2.walter-ag.de:8080/sap/bc/...uage=EN&ostore[1]=WBAU1_E&~okcode[1]=TOL&~target[1]=_top&~forcetarget[1]=yes>

    Don't forget to find other sources.
