It’s Thanksgiving in the US in two days. I’ll travel with my family to be with my dad for a couple of days.
This plate will go with me. Not the clearest pattern to photograph but you get the idea. I’ll show you the progress along the way.
What will you chip carve this week?
On Instagram and YouTube I’m regularly asked what wood I’m carving because the chips are so smooth and beautiful. I just made some wine bottle holders from another creamy, white piece of 1-1/8″ thick northern US grown basswood (linden). I had to take a picture! There’s nothing like it!!😁👍😁👍
Jim sent me photos of the carved tops of 3 custom boxes I made for him. One is butternut and the other two are basswood. The chip carved borders frame the shallow relief very nicely! Well done, Jim
Ruby Chip Carving Knives on SALE
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.
