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 6 piece set was developed in consultation with professional carvers for both relief and round carving and is ideal for both beginners and intermediate wood carvers. The set is beautifully presented in a canvas roll with each carving tool having its own location to prevent movement and to protect the blades. The set includes #1 straight chisel 8mm, #1s skew chisel 8mm, #5 gouge 8mm, #8 gouge 4mm, #11 veiner 3mm and #12 parting tool 6mm. This premium 6 piece carving tool set has a lifetime warranty and in the event that any tool fails due to a material or manufacturing defect it will be replaced free of charge. ©

Alun Davies

Had read some concerns on line that some of the set needed further honing. Personally, I am delighted with the set. Hardwood handles, good steel and supplied in a quality tool roll. At the price I paid these are a bargain. Will they require some work to get them as sharp as I wish-yes certainly. However, all chisels require regular honing. Sharpening and re-grinding are essential skills for all woodcarvers and woodworkers. If you are new to woodcarving these are ideal and if you are experienced, fettling them to attain an excellent tool is easy. Well done Rutlands. Great service and product.

Philip Hammond

I have no problem with giving these tools the full five stars for quality and the standard of service l received concerning the website and delivery.
I was impressed with the roll they arrived in the finish and edge.....they were good to go!

James Lynch

Good looking set of chisels in a nice storage wallet.
Highly polished metal but certainly not ready for use. The set that I received was ground and honed but clearly this had been carried out by someone who had no clue what they were doing. The edges were out of square, particularly apparent on the wider chisels, and all chisels had the corners rounded over. The inner bevels were irregular and far too shallow, looking like that they had been done using a polishing wheel. Be prepared to spend a lot of time regrinding and honing these chisels before they can be put to use.

Tim Blackman

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.

Rory Stevenson

Really happy with this quality set which came ready to use out of the box (or very handle roll). As with all of my carving tools I make sure they are ground to my liking, this was easily done and the steel was a treat to work with.

Paul Deakin

Being a hobbyist carver, I like to carve whenever I have the spare time and travelling around a lot for work I'm not always at home to indulge my hobby. This smaller six piece set is ideal for carving on the go and lets me carve wherever I want.

C Fletcher

As a professional wildlife carver I purchased this set of carving tools for adding the very fine details such as fur textures, feathers, eyes etc. The blades on these tools were decently sharp out of the box but I spent some time honing them further such that they now leave a beautifully clean cut on the most intricate of detailing and are very easy to control.

Douglas Coates

I just acquired a set of these, and I'm extremely impressed. I am not a wood-carver, more a furniture maker that carves the odd foot or other component. With that in mind, I really like these, they're the ones I'll reach for first. The size and balance make them very easy to control with accuracy, either hand or light mallet taps. The handles are light and very grippy and the blades are all honed very well. Finally the tool roll is well-made and protects the blades completely, making it easy to actually put them away properly. Lovely set.
