A couple who are clients of mine have two young boys ages 7-9, who constantly swipe mom’s paring and steak knives to carve found wood in their yard. After getting permission from the parents I cooked up this carving kit containing two beginners knives, handmade strop, hidden compartment for band aids, canister of silica carbide stropping powder, and fiber compression wrap for thumb and finger guards. I have also cut 14 pieces of assorted size carving blanks, basswood, butternut, and paulownia. Now I just need a good beginners carving book with simple patterns.
