Product Details

Made in Germany, the blades on these carving tools are made from a premium quality, hand forged chrome vanadium tool steel, which has high resistance to metal fatigue and will last a lifetime if given normal care when relief or round carving. Each blade is hardened to Rc61 along its entire length, resulting in a blade that will hold and retain a sharp, fine edge, over the life of the tool, without becoming brittle when sharpened. The blades are finely polished to achieve a mirror finish to minimise friction when roughing out or adding fine detail. The blade and tang are forged from one piece of steel, which is seated deeply into the chisel handle for strength and durability. The tools are fully honed and ready for use or you can add your preferred bevel angle by further grinding.

The handles are made from slow growing beech selected for its straight grain and strength. The octagonal shape ensures a secure, comfortable grip and prevents the tools rolling on the bench. Every handle is permanently engraved with the blade's pattern number and size for easy identification. The tools measure approximately 240mm overall in length with a handle length of 130mm.

This premium wood carving tool is a #8 gouge 4mm and has a lifetime warranty, in the event that any tool fails due to a material or manufacturing defect it will be replaced free of charge.

I have just bought five gouges from Rutlands and they are as good as you can get from any other well known chisels and gouges and the price is perfect half the price of every one else and by far 1St glass Chisels. May I say they are very robust and very well made. You can not fault them at all and I will be buying more, as I go along. I was not expecting this quality for this price. If you just buy one you will see what I mean, for quality and price. 10 out of 10 without a doubt.

Excellent carving tool, easy to handle, and well made as is everything I have bought from Rutlands, delivery is very quick too.

I am very much a beginner to carving and have been using a mixture of cheap and old carving tools. On the advice of a very experienced carver I purchased one Pfeil gouge at great cost. The difference in terms of ease of use and edge holding is enormous.
The various profiles in the set are exactly what I was recommended to get and I have found them equal in performance to the Pfeil.
In short this set is, to me, equally as good as my Pfeil and at a very reasonable price. I have no idea why a previous reviewer thought the price 'perhaps a little high' because according to my very experienced friend they are exceptional value for the money.

Barry Doolan

My recent purchase of two Rutlands carving tools was just what I was expecting. They arrived the day after purchase (as usual) and come in a nice cardboard box. I used them both that evening and I was impressed, after grinding and sharpening (the tool steel is great to work with and produced an incredibly sharp edge) the tools cut both basswood and lime like butter. Very happy.
