Carving instructor and author Janet Bolyard uses inexpensive soap and some handmade tools to teach basic carving skills in a less intimidating way than traditional methods. With a new book out in September – “Complete Guide to Soap Carving” – Janet has made it her mission to encourage soap carving and inspire creativity in young and old alike.
Glove fits and will protect hand from carving knives
I had another glove for carving, but it was stolen, along with some tools. I was using a leather gardening glove temporarily. The gouge I was using slipped ,went straight through the glove and nearly went through the joint of my index finger. The angle was the only thing that saved the finger. I am left with some nerve damage. I never make a single cut without my new safety glove, which I use with complete confidence. I should have got a small glove, as this medium glove is very large for me, but it also stops me slashing my wrist.
Dont carve without it
I don't carve without this on. I feel very safe holding projects while using a sharp knife in the other hand. I highly recomend this to anyone. I did get a size smaller than my messurement would indicate and I was glad I did. This should definately be one of your first purchases if you are new to carving.
Protects my hand when carving
A great carving glove
I bought one for myself and one for my son so he can learn to carve. The fit is perfect and makes carving easier.
No more cuts!
No more cutting my fingers.
Less worries regarding cuts and grip.
I would buy this product again.
I use the product while woodcarving to protect myself from slice cuts.
Take their advice and get the next smaller size than you would normally, the material stretches for a snug fit. It is easy to work in and my only concern would be the loose knit construction, it might not completely stop the knife from cutting you but it surely will stop it from being a major injury.
not well sold...
These protective gloves seem to do their job exceedingly well. The problem, and the subject of most complaints, is with their sizing. My own hand measures 8 1/2" around, which according to ordering instructions, indicates a size M, to fit a 7-9" hand. In fact, my hand is comfortably at the high end of that size, so I should expect that glove to fit fairly snugly. I had read about the sizing issue, so purchased a size smaller than measurement suggested I should (i.e. a Small). I must say THIS glove fits almost perfectly, if slightly on the large side. Most of the complaints about this product stem from this glove being much too big, as delivered, given the sizes recommended. WOODCRAFT should ABANDON the sizing instructions provided by the manufacturer (I assume that source), and develop their own, much more accurate system, essentially, instruct buyers to order the smaller size. That would eliminate most complaints about this item, which is actually quite effective in preventing injuries due to slipping carving tools. It's difficult to understand why WOODCRAFT hasn't done this before now...
the medium was more like an extra large.
The glove is much to big and would make slipping easy. You should add in your advertising to order a size or two smaller.
