  • Chip Carving
    a handle which is so beautifully sculpted that whatever detail task is approached t he knife always sits perfectly in the hand whether the cut requires pushing or pulling Click on any of the thumbnail photos in this section to see a larger image of the products The set of all five of these knife styles is presented in a beautifully soft leather toolroll with ten pockets giving plentiful room for expanding the collection as a later date Sometimes even whittlers meet situations where the conventional knives just seem to be out of their depth For just those situations we have obtained two unique and very specia l designs of knife The 313 B is a skew chisel knife which as its name suggests can be used to remove larger pieces of timber using a chiselling action pushing the handle from behind It also has the strength and rigidity to be used to create deep stop cuts and to pare larger surfaces An unusual knife with lots of uses falling squarely as does that which follows into the why didn t I think of that class The offset or cranked blade knife reference 313 C has an immensely powerful cutting action used with the heel of the blade against the thumb and the handle levered against the fulcrum thus created At the same time the action of rolling against the thumb allows the cutting action to be very precisely controlled Our seven piece carving tool set includes both of these heavy duty cutting tools to create a combination of cutting power that is unmatched anywhere else The seven piece set is delivered in our ten pocket soft leather toolroll Chip carving has its roots in the tradition of kerbschnitzen found principally in Switzerland Bavaria Austria and other countries of that region Perhaps the man who does most to perpetuate the art today is Wayne Barton whose books and videos on the subject may be found in our Book Videos department Look for the Chip Carving heading For chip carving we have selected a set of just three knives a beauty of chip carving is that it is a simple art yet capable of creations of great beauty One might well opine that only two knives are really required for this activity and you d be right in principle However the use of a heavy knife is essential when making larger cuts yet such a knife can feel clumsy and the thickness of the blade can cause undue resistance when the same knife is used on more delicate work For this reason we have decided to include two sizes of chip carving cutting knives in our set of three chip carving knives The set is completed by a superbly soft and supple toolroll with five pockets just in case you decide that three is just not enough knives even for chip carving The knives are of course in common with all those listed here available separately Finally for those who need
