Ideal for delicate wood carving, these tools can also be used for block cutting and linoleum.
To give them a razor edge, all tools are finish ground and honed.
At 5 1/4" long overall, they have comfortable hardwood handles that allow excellent control. The set of six includes:
- a 5/16" bent chisel
- a 3/8" bent skew
- a 3/8" straight chisel
- a 1/8" #6 gouge
- a 1/8" 60° bent parting tool
- a 5/16" #5 bent gouge
The tools are made by Henry Taylor Tools Ltd. of Sheffield. They are hand forged, which results in a fine-grained steel that holds an edge well and will last a lifetime if given normal care. All tools have brass ferrules and select beech or pau marfim handles. Due to the hand forging, sizes are nominal and shapes may vary slightly.
