Topic tags/keywords: chisels ash basswood

Hello,

I am looking for a set of good quality curved chisel that I can use to make hand crafted spoons. Can you recommend where I should get these?

Thanks

You’re looking for gouges. That’s the correct terminology.

You’d want to look at carving tools. Lee Valley
has a decent selection. Highland Hardware
is another good resource for hand tools.

You might consider what’s sold for spoon carving
be Garrett Wade. http://www.garrettwade.com/spoon-carving-tools.html

I was watching a gentleman, his name is Paul Sellers on Youtube using a gouge chisel to hollow in the wood for spoon making (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krAIHRCx9R0) 14 min in. So, I was trying to attempt the same procedure using a gouge instead of carving it.

I use 2 or 3 Pfiel gouges for spoon work. They hold an edge marvelously well.

I’ve got some Two Cherries chisel that are awesome. A german woodcarver told me that Stubai has the best steel in the world. It’s an Austrian company.

David, he mentions in that video I think one of the gouges he recommends. The Hirsch 37mm #7 gouge is one of them. Highland Hardare carries it still I think.
Here’s the link to Paul’s blog article, there are a couple more you could search for.
