Topic tags/keywords: carving tool

I carved for many years and loved it. These days repetitive pounding motions really bother my neck and give me a headache. So let someone in better physical shape create some pieces from these tools. They are not sharp any more- except the Japanese tools, which will cut you!

The only tools left are the Japanese carving tools below:

My Japanese carving tools (never used and kept in the box)-except for the chisel.

If you’re interested, let me know.
Thanks,
Cathy

I’m a beginner at carving. I am looking for a set of tools for chip-carving. Anything like that in your inventory? The japanese set looks really nice, but probably out of my price range. Let me know

Thanks

I never was chip carver. This set would not be that beneficial to you. My carvings were bigger. You can see my horse (the mailbox) and gracie, my pet giraffe, in my projects. I loved carving animals. There is something magical about finally adding the eyes. I even added epoxy around the eyes so that I could add fake eyelashes-that was pretty cool. Unfortunately, I have a bad neck from an auto accident that happened years ago. It has been a nuisance over the years. The repetitive motion of carving is just too much for me know. I hope one of you LJ’s can make good use of these tools. Funny even though I rolled out the tools to photograph this morning, I found myself taking some away. “Nope, not that one. No, not that one either.” I have kept about 10. I also haven’t displayed my antique gouges and chisels. I was so thrilled to have them, it would be difficult to break that bond. As an interesting twist, years ago I bought a nice chisel from an antique dealer in Pennsylvania. When I got home, I cleaned it up and sharpened it. That’s when I noticed that there was a name etched into the shaft. It was my maiden name. Wow. I wonder if he ever knew that a female descendent would someday cherish that chisel as much as he did! This still makes me smile…...

Cathy,

I would be interested in the spoke shaves and draw knives. I am afraid they may be over my allowance, but I will ask anyway. Doesn’t hurt to ask, right?

Thanks,

Tim

The spoke shaves are $6 each and the draw knives are $10 (they are antiques-better steel)

I have 45 chisels and gouges and since they have to be sharpened, which is a pain, I’m asking $6 each. Not a bad price…...

I don’t know the brand, it’s written in Japanese. When our local Woodcraft had a tool show two years ago, he was there. He doesn’t speak English well, but was happy to take my money! I called Woodcraft. They said his name was Maruyoshi (something like that). Here’s the name on the box:
And inside the box it shows the various gouges:

The set costs me $500. I’m asking $400 or my best offer.
Thanks, Cathy
