BeaverCraft is a small manufacturer that has been producing well-made yet inexpensive carving tools in Kyiv, Ukraine, since 2014. Despite the enormous challenges they face operating in a war zone, they continue to build both their product line and their reputation among woodcarvers.
Used to whittle a pair of charming wooden teddy bears, this kit includes a palm-handle carving knife with a 1 5/8" blade, two 2" × 2" × 4" linden blanks, a carving pattern, sharpening abrasive, honing compound and a leather strop, a roll of high-friction guard tape to protect fingers and improve grip, a pencil and an instruction booklet. To supplement the illustrated instructions, the kit includes a link to an online video showing every step.
Supplied sharpened and honed, ready for use, the high-carbon steel knife blade makes precise, controlled cuts; with a little regular edge maintenance, it should continue to yield good results for years to come.
