New Lift-off Lid Box
This box is new and ready for you to carve! Almost 8″ square made from clear basswood. Click HERE
I’ll be creating patterns for it soon. You can use border and rosette patterns already available to get started now.
Ruby Chip Carving Knives are replacing the Gold Edition Knives.
And they are much better than the Gold Knives for a few reasons:
– thinner cutting edge
– M2 high speed steel
– Rc63 hardenness
– made in the USA
– zebrawood handles
I think these new Ruby Knives are close to if not better than the recently replaced Platinum Edition Knives.
All My Chip Carving Knives are 100% satisfaction guaranteed!
$39.95 SALE price $35.95
(On sale through March 31st. If knives go out of stock, please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery)
Besides a different handle, the only difference between the Ruby and Diamond Knives is that the Ruby blades are ground so each blade is stronger and more forgiving (see posted image). There’s a trade-off between blade strength and ease of cutting. We believe we’ve found the proper balance so the blade tip won’t break as you learn how to chip carve.

I recently purchased some plates. The first one I carved was ok the second one seems to be very dry. Wood chips,and tears to easy,cannot get a smooth cut. What are your ideas on how to get the wood back to a carveable condition? Your help much needed. Thanks Joe
