*BEST CHOICE FOR BEGINNERS!*

Each tool in this Premium Hand Sharpened 12pc Foundation Set has been individually and professionally hand sharpened by Dick Belcher of Belcher Carving Supply. While our regular set of tools comes factory sharpened, we wanted to offer a premium set to our customers who would like their tools professionally ground and honed before purchase. 

This Foundational Set features 12 essential tools you need to start any carving project, from an intricate relief panel to a life-sized bust, or from a house sign to a caricature figure. These hand-selected gouges and chisels allow beginners to get started carving, intermediate carvers to add to their collection, and professionals to have a backup set or a set to grind at a different bevel. This tool set accommodates everyone.

Why is the Premium Set a great choice for beginners?

Beginners will be able to jump in and start carving immediately with this set. Additionally, having your tools professionally sharpened will make future sharpening and maintenance easier. For someone with no sharpening experience, it will be valuable to have a sharpening "template" to follow.

  • Schaaf Tools Premium Hand Sharpened 12pc Foundation Set set comes professionally sharpened. Each gouge is ready to use on any project right out of the box.
  • These tools are truly professional quality, hand sharpened to be razor-sharp.
  • Will hold an edge as long as more expensive brands, like Pfeil
  • A $500 value at a fraction of the cost.
