West Coast – Carving Tool Sources

2012/01/23
Some tools are available locally or at Lee Valley tools, gouges, chisels, straight blades (Frost).

First time I will buy from Kestrel, he may be retiring soon. I hear they are the best out there:
 —
Some tools I have made with Rick, all of the adzes, a few crooked knives and straight blades.
 —
Crooked knives and straight blades made by Herb Rice at WhippleTree Junction, Coast Salish Journey:
 —
Preferred Edge makes great crooked knives, they just changed hands. Don’t know if they are in production mode yet.
 —
For good chip carving knives and gouges, FlexCut is available in Comox at Island Woodcraft Supplies, (on the way to the airport)
 —
Or you can probably buy directly from the company
Swiss Made is a good brand for gouges
 —
Henry Taylor makes some good gouges as well
 —
Frost straight blades available at Lee Valley

Enough drooling now, get back to work!
