Carving tools

Carving can be done with a knife or chisels that can be bought.

For light carving a carving awl is very good. A carver awl has just the end sharpened so you can push with your finger resting on the back behind the blade.

Especially good for vegetable carving for printing.

Also very good for cutting curves in paper or card.

For heavier duty carving use a metal cutting awl hit with a hammer.
