For anyone who would like to make a start in woodcarving, Henry Taylor, in conjunction with well known craftsman, teacher and author Jeremy Williams, has developed this special Starter Set Pack. The set contains five hand-forged tools (a range of four gouges plus a flat chisel), all sharpened and honed ready for use, and a 12 page leaflet written by Jeremy Williams, with complete instructions and a pattern to enable the beginner to produce an attractive relief carving. The hexagonal beech wood handles prevent the tools from rolling off the bench when not in use. This set contains: 1/4"(6mm) flat chisel, 1/4"(6mm) shallow gouge, 1/4"(6mm) and 5/16"(8mm) medium gouges and a 5/16 (8mm) steep-cut gouge, blade lengths: 82mm - 90mm.

Sheffield Steel - Its all you need to knowHandmade in Sheffield for 150 years - excellent quality tools and worth every single penny. So glad I picked these up, I was tempted by Pfeil and 2 Cherries but in the end I decided to buy British because I've had it up to hear with tossing out chocolate Chinese tools My Granddad always said to only buy Sheffield Steel when you buy a tool and I must say it's advice that has proven itself out with these beauties.
