We pride ourselves in creating the finest carving knives available. Our knives are all individually hand forged, heat treated to a Rockwell 62c and triple tempered, for the longest lasting durable edge available. These knives will hold an edge indefinitely with proper care. Best of all...Stropping is all that is needed for edge maintenance.
The standard handle (top) is 5 1/2" long. The tear drop handle (bottom) is 4 1/2" long. The tear drop handle was designed for those of you who like a shorter handle. You may also enjoy the tear drop style if you primarily push your knife through the wood. The standard handle is still the favorite among most carvers and is used unless otherwise specified.
Not sure where to begin, we have put together the perfect starter set. A #1 standard carving knife, which is the most widely used all purpose blade, A strop and compound which is all you will need for edge maintenance, a glove for protection against slips, an information packet including a pattern or two and a a band aid for good luck. Of course, everything is backed by our unconditional guarantee so you can start carving today!
Starter set choices
A bend to meet every need. The top one is our standard bend. This tool gives you a bit of reach and works great for hollowing channels, spoons and eye sockets. The next is a gradual bend for when you want to remove large shallow areas such as in mask carving and the bottom two are deep bends a favorite for deep hollow work. Although bent blades were originally designed for hollowing out spoons and Native American masks, you will find they come in very handy for many other applications. Uses include eye sockets, rounding corners and other spots you just can't reach with a straight blade. The blades are 1 1/2" - 2" in length.. Available Right and Left handed Push or Pull style.
