Comments about Palm-Grip Carvers:
Product description is accurate. These carving tools were everything that I asked for. A little smaller than expected. I love how they feel. Cuts smoothly on basswood. Have yet to try on other species of wood.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I did not receive the sharpening stone.
I did not receive the sharpening stone that is supposed to be included with the carvers.

These are wonderful tools for young teenagers (not for younger children)and older. They are easy to hold and use. They cut cleanly, and are far superior to other tools I have used in the past.

I've been doing wood and Lino cuts for years and have used many tools but keep going back to this set. They are comfortable in my hand and cut very well. They hold a great edge and the slip stone works well for keeping them sharp.

By Jake Paints

I really like the wooden handles, they feel good in the hand. Although this could have included a bag or case for the carvers, I will definitely recommend this set to a friend.

Always buy a good tool!
By J. Maki
from Port Hadlock, WA
The carver feels well balanced in my hand and fits comfortably while cutting through the linoleum. Cuts smoothly as it should when it's sharp. I would have liked a size smaller "V" cutter but the selection in the set is still quite good. I would definitely recommend this set.

Great Tools for Beginner Wood Carver
By J T Money
from Omaha, Nebraska
I'm brand new to the world of wood carving so I really can only speak as a newbie. As of now all my work is done on small blocks of basswood (a softer wood), so I wanted these palm handles for comfort and control. I used them for the first time today and I must say they worked quite well. Gripping the tool with the handle in your palm and your fingers wrapped down the metal shaft gives great control. The blades themselves are plenty sharp out of the box (as my cut left index finger can attest to - I have yet to purchase a Kevlar glove!). At the store I did some checking to make sure the blades were straight and beveled correctly (as best as I could anyhow). Only one set had one chisel that looked suspect - the rest were all spot-on, and honed well. I have yet to use the little included sharpening stone, but I also ordered a slip strop so the stone may not get much use. I'm a beginner and green as green can be, but the tools on my very first project performed the cuts very well. Deep or shallow, the edges went through the basswood like it was butter. For a starter set of gouges and chisels, I'm happy. These little guys should take me a long way. The palm handles are also flat on one side to keep them from rolling away - a nice touch. Now if I just had more time to carve...
