Details

The handle shape and short blade length of these unique carving tools make them the perfect "gap fillers" between palm tools and "big" carving tools. This gap is where you often find the beginners who are not sure of the methods and techniques required to handle various materials. The laminated steel blades offer you a high level of intricacy and precision in your art. These blades are much shorter than the standard blades that you find out there on the market. This is because they have tried to make the tip as sharp as possible with minimal vibration. This kit comes with a gouge, skew, chisel, and a parting tool. Everything needed to get your woodcarving going.

The handle on this product has been made from a durable hardwood. This will ensure that the wood does not split when you apply force to it. The wood has also been varnished to keep it looking brand new. The size of this handle is like that of a pencil, meaning that it allows the user to have a carving experience similar to drawing. This makes the switch easier for artists who want to become woodcarvers. When more force is needed place the flared handle end in the palm of your hand.

Features:
  • Perfect "gap fillers" between palm handled and full sized carving tools
  • Complete 7-piece set offers precision to the user
  • Durable hardwood handles are designed to be held like a pencil for precise control

    Not for large hands

    Even though I'm returning these I'm still giving them 4 stars. Steel is extremely good and holds an edge. Out of the box hair shaving razor sharp, just the shape and size of the handles feel small and clumsy in my larger hands. I would highly recommend these for someone with smaller hands. As a reference I wear large to extra large gloves.

    Great tools at low price

    Other reviewers are correct. While these tools are reasonably priced, do not be fooled - they are great quality. The bevels are fairly shallow, making for easier cutting, The steel appears top-rate, holding the edge for a long time. I use these all the time for detail work and texturing. The pencil-like grips allow for comfortable detail work. Beginners will enjoy this set, but I have used them for years for almost all of my carvings. Great value.

    Good Starter Set

    These are pretty much ready to go right away. One of the blades had nicks in it and had to be ground and honed quite a bit at first but they all hold their edges pretty well as long as I strop them after about 30 minutes of use. It's easy to get focused on a project and let the edges dull a little too much and I have had to sharpen them a couple of times. They are really great for a beginner but definitely not all one needs. I also bought a jack knife and a chip carving knife which I use quite a bit along with these. I would definitely recommend these to anyone!

    Edge holds well

    I thought it would be interesting to try my had at carving some simple projects. Bought this set as well as flexcut carving tool set of 4. The edge held well I just honed after every session so it would be nice and sharp for use.

    Excellent Buy

    Excellent set. Extremely Sharp, ready to use, comfortable to hold, manuverable, quality steel, holds edge well. What else can I say, this is a quality set for a reasonable price. I only wish they offered more of these in a wider variety of sweeps and sizes, I would buy a full set, reguardless of the price.

    Great tools for the price

    I started doing relief carving on furniture pieces at the request of my customers. My only regret is that there isn't a wider variety of gouges.

    Power Grip

    I use these carving tools for hard to get to detail work, more control with the larger grips and shorter blades.
