Explore the enjoyable pastime of whittling with this selection that includes two good-quality carving knives, two sets of sanded basswood whittling blanks in sizes suitable for small carvings, and a 95-page collection of skill-building projects for beginner and intermediate whittlers.
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 detail knife has a 1 5/16" blade with a fine point for making precise cuts; the roughing knife has a sturdy, straight 1 3/4" long blade for quickly shaping work.
Basswood Blank Sets
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 three-piece set includes 1 3/4" × 1 3/4" blanks of various lengths. The 10-piece set includes two 3/4" × 1" × 2", two 3/4" × 1" × 4", three 3/4" × 1 1/2" × 2" and three 3/4" × 1 1/2" × 4" blanks. (All dimensions are approximate.)
