This twelve-piece carving chisel has an array of different blades. They have made sure to cover all the different aspects one might encounter whilst carving wood. The handle is made from beautiful ash wood. It has been coated in wood preserving oil that will prevent the handles from wearing out over time. The blades are made from shiny steel.
The product does not attempt to be overly fancy with its presentation, but rather appears to be fit for purpose. It comes with a black carrying case that has a slot for each blade to be stored safely. The products have been hard and at the back using a steel ring. This means that whilst you are using this product if you need to hit it with a hammer or a mallet, it can deal with that.
I would say that this product is well designed for its purpose. The blades come already sharpened and are made from durable steel. This will prevent the blades from going dull through continuous usage. The handles are made from wood, and this has its benefits as well as challenges. The main benefit of having a wooden handle is that it will last longer without breaking.
Rubber grips are well known to fade over time and begin to chip. You will not necessarily experience this problem too early with a wooden handle. The main challenge with a wooden handle is that as you begin to sweat when working the grip becomes more difficult to use. Many consumers will tell you that they have been forced to buy gloves because as they sweat their knives become very slippery. This is a challenge that she will not face with rubber handles.
The product has been made very safe to use. A question that should be asked is how safe can you make a knife? Using very durable steel, the manufacturers of this product have managed to ensure the user’s safety. This is because as you are using the product, it is unlikely to break or bend. If this were to happen, then you could sustain an injury.
I think the handles are quite small compared to other knives in this category, which can be difficult for a person with big hands to use. They have designed these tools to be small and nimble; however, that does not consider the main challenges people with big hands will be facing. It has been made suitable for beginners and has a carry case.
The carry case will assist you to prevent the loss of knives. When you are still new to this, it is quite common to put knives in different places and forget where they are. In these different place’s children can easily pick up these knives. Therefore, you should make sure that young children around the house cannot easily find this case of knives.
Who is this product ideal for?
Looking at this product’s quality and price, I would say that it has been made ideal for beginner wood covers. If you were just getting started, you might not be willing to spend so much money on a pair of knives, especially if you are unsure if this hobby is for you.
They have been made with adequate quality, and they have a decent ergonomic design. I do not think it would sway people on the fence to go in one direction or the other for the price charged on this product.
To conclude, I would recommend this product for someone looking to get started. As a beginner, you can buy this product and expect a pleasant experience. It comes made from quality carbon steel and has a mature wooden handle. The knives’ rear has been strengthened with a steel ring to use with a hammer or mallet.
It is moderately priced to allow people who wish to purchase this as a gift the option to do so. It is not too expensive that the gift will seem inappropriate. It is also not too expensive that if you buy it for yourself as a beginner and find that you are not very interested, you can always give up without guilt.
Not everything is for everyone. It is important to try out new things, which is a great way to begin wood carving. I would not recommend this product for professionals because they are much better tools out there than we are reviewing.
