I am a Hobbyist woodworker, and have been looking into wood carving for a while now. I did not want to spend large amounts of money for a carving set not knowing if I would like it enough to stick with it. Enter this kit! When it arrived (On time as promised, in double packaging!), I immediately opened it to feel the tools, and inspect the quality. I was pleasantly surprised. The handles are ergonomic and cushioned, and the steel is pretty heavy grade. Knowing that no tool comes with a great factory edge, I commenced to hone and sharpen them to razor sharp. Getting a counter-bevel on them was a little tough to start, but Once I got the technique down it worked fairly well. My fist carving project is a simple desk plaque with my name on it. I am overall very happy with the quality of the tools and especially with the price. Eventually I may upgrade to more pro quality tools, but to learn on, these are great!
