Product Information:

Includes both the Carving Knife and Detail Knife.

These are the special knives Rick Butz uses to carve and whittle his sought-after masterpieces. Shown in his books and television series, these tools were developed to provide carvers with knives that are easier to hold, more efficient in cutting and safer to use. A special forward notch in the cherry wood handle safely puts your hand closer to the blades. You'll find you have more power and control with this feature. Select cherry handle has also been enlarged and contoured to provide a more natural and comfortable tool. Oil finish protects the knife handle and gives greater holding power than regular lacquered 'slick' finishes. All these features make the Butz knives carving tools that are sure to please woodcarvers of all skill levels. Require honing before use. Made in Germany.

    Comments about Butz Knives - Carving Knife & Detail Knife :

    The Butz carving knife makes a great gift for begginers. I have been carving for the last five years with a swiss brand knife and was looking for a afforadable knife. This was a reasonable price for a novice. These were purchased for a nephew, who is beginning to carve small farm animals. The knifes needed some sharpening but are comfortable to grip.

    Comments about Butz Knives - Carving Knife & Detail Knife :

    The local Woodcraft "carving" sales clerk recommended these 4 yrs ago when I started carving. There was no mention of needing to sharpen or how by the store personel. To this day there is no signage at the store or even a sticker on the package stating that the product needs to be fully sharpend to use. I worked at sharpening these knives for 3 months before I went and bought some Flexcuts. If you are a beginner don't waste your money on a Butz knife.
