Light, delicate, and beautifully balanced, the profi range of CrMn carbon steel carving chisels are Narex's flagship carving tool range and a source of great pride for the craftsmen who make them.
Each tool is ground from the forged blank by hand, alongside the unrivalled finesse and refinement that this brings you may also notice the lovely little irregularities that are the hallmark of handmade tools. All of the edges are nicely eased and with their classic 'barrel octagon' handles these tools feel wonderful in the hand.
Supplied in a fitted card box the six piece set contains a broad No.7 that does most of the initial shaping, a front bent 7 and 9 for refining shapes, a medium width shallow finishing gouge for smoothing, a V tool for undercutting and a veiner for detailing. This capable selection makes a sensible starting point whether you end up doing relief carving or working in the round and will give you a sense for which tools you may wish to add later.
