That same set was one of my first purchases and one of my biggest regrets. Don’t confuse this Buck name with the excellent Buck knife company here in USA. These are junk! There are some nice starter sets available that will come super sharp and will stay sharp with little effort. My personal favorites are the Flexcut set I have and a small selection of Ashley Isles two-handed gouges I bought from a carver friend. Both are a pleasure to work with year after year, and that is what carving is all about…enjoying yourself. There is great advice here and very useful links. I wish I would have found L.J’s. years ago.
