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.

Ancient Kauri from New Zealand is the oldest workable wood in the world. Tsunamis leveled the mighty Kauri thousands of years ago and they have been preserved underground in the top half of the North Island of New Zealand for more than 45,000 years.

Ideal begginers carving 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.
Holds a good edge
Comfortable feel, good handle design gives good control of the knife blade
Great kinves, i reccomend paying the sharpening fee. they were a bear to get sharp and i have the right tools to do it.
Butz knives are a pain in the...
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.
