HOCK TOOLS Blades and Such for Planes and More

The blades of these comfortable carving knives are made from our high carbon steel, hardened to Rc62 (if that sounds familiar it's because that's the same steel and hardness as our high-carbon knives and plane blades) easy to hone to the sharpest possible edge.

Handles are bubinga with nothing more than an oil finish.

Hi Ron, Just over a month ago I began learning chip carving. I purchased a Pfiel Chip Carving knife and sharpened it to the recommended 10 degree angle but continued to struggle with it. Tonight I bought your Chip Carver #CKC100 at my local Woodcraft store and after spending maybe 30-40 seconds just stropping the blade I am already cutting chips especially around corners much better than before. The angle to the blade does take a few minutes to get used to as the first few triangles I missed going all the way to the corner on. But with just maybe 5 minutes practice and that knife is making chips fly. I have found that neither straight lines nor radically curved areas are a problem any more. Thank you Ron. By the way your plane blades have made my old Baileys sing also. -- R.S.

These right- or left-hand, spear point marking knife blades (the bevels are on one side only) are perfect for scribing fine lines against a straight edge. The small one make a great dove-tail chisel. No handles. High carbon steel.
