Watch a YouTube video to understand how best to use these. I struggled at first but after watching a BeaverCraft spoon carving video, I was able to quickly make up four sets of large wooden spoons on Christmas Eve. IMPORTANT: get yourself some cheap carving gloves with this. You can’t replace fingers so protect them well.
I found this kit to be an incredible value. Though, at the time of me writing this review the kit seems to be unavailable.
After watching a few Youtube videos, I tried the set out and ended up whittling for 3 hours. In addition to this I also bought gloves for prepping food for $17 and I highly recommend that. I never whittled before and several times I did not realize I was holding the blade part with my palm. I also had a puncture wound when I lost control and the gloves did not completely save me. But no ER visit at 2am.I was kind of chuckling because some people said the blade wouldn’t cut at all…and I think they were using the wrong side. The blades work well and I was carving pine wood which is not as soft as basswood.For components, there is foam inside with cut outs for the pieces to protect the blade. I also like that the wooden box has a piece that bends because it’s been scored.Overall m, the set is good, but for my purposes I might need to add a different knife.
Fits good in the hands very good quality. I'm glad I got them.
The knives come sharpen and ready to do carving. Easy to hold.
The kit is very nice! The box makes a very nice presentation, and the knives arrived VERY sharp. I appreciate the included spoon blank. I wish the pamphlet in the listing were included, however. I'll have to look up information elsewhere.
Looks nice in the box, but hard to take out of carton. There are no gloves or finger protectors, as you might assume from images, and there is no instructions guide, although product page says there is. All in all, nice.
No dislike. Very fine set of carving knives. Excellent quality.
I thought it came with a booklet about how to use it, but there wasn't one included.
Knives are very easy to hold and comfortable. I'm new so I don't know how to do a lot of the more intricate cuts but they did a great job at rough cutting a rabbit and the spoon so far. Definitely worth the money.
