We are pleased to offer a basic kit of seven carving tools made by Forge de Saint Juery (Auriou) to the specific specifications for a beginner set by Chris Pye. The set consists of:
  • # 3 x 8mm (5/16in.)
  • # 3 x 14mm (1/2in.)
  • # 6 x 8mm (5/16in.)
  • # 6 x 14mm (1/2in.)
  • # 9 x 8mm (5/16in.)
  • # 9 x 14mm (1/2in.)
  • 60 deg. V tool x 10mm (3/8in.)
This is a basic set but it is designed to give you many carving choices: deep gouges for shaping, medium for modelling, flat gouges for smoothing surfaces, and the ever-useful V tool; and with these tools you'll have the means of carving a wide range of subjects.

The tools are made to Chris Pye's specifications. The new gouges have the older, 'allongee' style of blade that splays from the shoulder: they are lighter to use, the corners are more available for cutting. The handles are also to Chris's design.

The basic set of tools comes packed in our exclusive, made in USA, Tools for Working Wood carving roll, complete with lots of extra pockets for additional tools, and for flaps to protect the tools from sliding out.

Extender Set:In addition to the tools in the basic set we also have a set of four additional tools which will extend functionality of the basic set. The four tools are:

  • # 2 x 10mm Skew(3/8in.)
  • # 3 x 20mm (3/4in.)
  • # 6 x 20mm (3/4in.)
  • # 9 x 20mm (3/4in.)

The extender set does not come in its own canvas roll but will easily fit in the roll included with the basic set.

We are also offering two sets of 3 tools each. A set of smaller gouges 5mm (7/32") wide in sweeps 3,6 and 9 and a set with larger 26mm (1") gouges also in sweeps 3,6, and 9.

These tools are only available in sets. The tools are made in France.

Great set

By: Brad (Nov, 2013)

I am new to carving. I found the tools easy to get into service. I used them for my first project, a vine pattern on the legs of a hard maple butcher block table. Tools worked great.
I own this product.
