The event I was waiting for has come about - free shipping from Lee Valley through the 13th.
So I am looking at these:
Specifically the large and small chip knives. I have a large (for me) collection of carving tools in a roll. I generally only use them to make fine fixes on flat work. But I have hopes. I really want to learn to carve those whimsical stick toppers. (NO snakes!)
So, you two carvers par excellance, what do you think? Those knives a good investment? If you have other suggestions, let's hear them.
