Diamond Chip Carving Knives

My Chip Carving Diamond Knives will revolutionize your chip carving! The cutting edge is extra thin and razor sharp. Made from M2 high-speed steel and hardened to Rc63, the full tang blade is 0.040″ on the spine and precision ground to a thin edge that will slice through your wood to remove chip after chip. These same precision blades are used on all Diamond Knives.

Handles come in your choice of these exotic woods: leopardwood,  bocote or wenge. Thumb notches are ground at 60 degrees on both sides of the handle. This essential thumb notch will register your grip at a consistent angle whether you are right or left handed. The blade is secured to the handle with high grade epoxy and large brass rivets. The hand-rubbed oil finish will feel wonderful as you carve.

Diamond Cutting Knives – Excellent for removing three-corner chips, gradual curves, straight lines and large chips.

Diamond Modified Knives – Less metal on the spine makes this knife excellent for chatter-free curved cuts, lettering and detail work.

Diamond Deluxe Knives – Mosaic pins are used to secure the rich wenge handle to the blade making your Deluxe knives unique and intricate. Extra time is taken when hand rubbing the finish on the handles with both oil and wax. Your Diamond Deluxe Knives may have different mosaic pins than the ones pictured.

Note: Do not twist or pry with your Diamond Knife as this may cause the extra thin blade to break.

    Thanks for the tip. Got my knives Monday. All I can say is Wow! The difference between the Diamond and the Gold is enormous. Love the grind and they cut like butter. I had been struggling last week but my carving looked bad. Doesn’t look bad now. I’ll send the Gold Knives back tomorrow.

    Thanks,

    Michael D. Fox

    Hi Marty,
    Received my Diamond knives today. What a pair of beauties! Love the weight and shape of the handle. I’ve used the regular bladed knife thus far and it slides through the ez board like butta. Thanks for such a great pair of knives, from my perspective the wait was well worth it.

    Sincerely,
    Jack Meyer

    Hello Marty,

    I have received the new knives and have tried them out.

    They feel good in my hand, are easy to keep sharp with a bit of stropping once in a while.
    Good job Marty! Thank you.

    The diamond knife I got a few weeks ago is the best I’ve ever used. Cuts are clean and blade keeps its edge.

    Ohh boy, I got to carve with these beauts today. This has changed my expectations of how a knife should perform. I really like the extra length on the cutting knife. It fits so much better in my hand. And the diamond modified knife knife makes carving feel like a Gold Medal ice dance. Smooth… And they are so purdy!

    When I first tried these knives, I wasn’t very happy with them. Don’t know if it was the wood or some physical problems with the hands that discouraged me. I picked up the modified knife working on a project because I needed to do a fine line cut and I fell in love with it; and found that the cutting knife was taking out large chips without any effort at all. Well worth the money!

    I have been a woodworker for many years designing and building mostly furniture in oak and maple and I thought chip carving would be another creative outlet to fill my time in retirement. So, I am a relative newbie at chip carving. I started with the Platinum knives and enjoyed carving many small projects as I learned the craft. But, as my projects became bigger and more complex I started to reach a plateau and became frustrated with my inability to progress. While seriously contemplating giving it up Marty came out the with Platinum Knives. With my late dad’s words ringing in my ear (“a craftsman never blames his tools”) I ignored his advice and took the plunge. Granted, my expectations were low, but WOW! These knives were amazing right out to the box. I picked up a project I had set aside in frustration and these knives were popping chips beyond anything I had experienced. After owning them for four months I can say that without a doubt the Diamond knives have been a breakthrough for me. While I would still consider myself a beginner, I am at a point where chipping away on a project for 3 or 4 hours is very satisfying. These Diamond blades are much harder than the Platinum and I have had to learn so new sharpening habits. But, Marty has been super supportive and patient with me. I think I am getting there. I have yet to sharpen the modified knife, only strop it on occasion and it still leaves super clean cuts.
