Flexcut Carving Knives

Each of these knives has an ergonomically shaped wooden handle suitable for extended carving periods. Exceptionally sharp and easily controlled, the double-bevelled high-carbon spring-steel blade (Rc52-54) comes fully honed, ready for use. The standard chip-carving knife has a 1" blade for deeper cuts and rapid material removal, as well as for incising well-defined straight and curved lines. The 5/8" skew knife is ideal for paring cuts.

Basswood Boards

A light-colored, medium-density wood often favored for carving, basswood is easy to work, with straight grain and a fine, even texture that takes detail well. The package of five 1/2" thick × 4" × 12" boards can be used in relief or chip carving.

Softcover, 8 1/2" × 11", 2005.
