My favorite tools
I spent a few months in Savannah, Georgia early in 2014 when I was finishing my graduate studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Once the quarter ended and I was packing to return home to Illinois, I stopped into the campus bookstore to take one last look around. In the art supply department I spotted a beautiful set of carving tools in a wood box. They had perfectly rounded handles that fit in the palm of your hand. They were a bit pricey but I bought them as a treat for myself and I am SO glad I did! I have used this brand of carving tools ever since. They are Flex-Cut brand and can be found at some art supply stores and wood working supply stores. They are also online at and Flex-Cut's own website:
