"RAZOR EDGE" Tools really are RAZOR SHARP !!!

The knife fits comfortably in the hand for right or left hand use.

All the blades can be stored in the plastic sheath
(provided) with one already fitted to the handle. This is great for travelling to shows or taking anywhere for carving or whittling away from home!

 

Hand made in the USA, the quality of these items is extremely high, with a comfortable walnut handle and seven interchangeable blades.

When delivered, the general purpose Heavy Duty Blade is fitted to the handle. Loosening the locking-nut at the front (using the spanner provided) enables blades to be changed easily and safely within a few seconds.

 

The Basic Set Consists of:-
1 Walnut Handle with brass "Lock Jaw" mechanism and locking tool.

1 Heavy Duty Blade

6 Finer Blades for detail carving.

All the blades are made from high-carbon tool steel, hardened to Rockwell 60 C scale, double tempered, and hollow ground.

Epoxy putty

Two-part epoxy - mix equal amounts of adhesive and hardener together to start the setting reaction. The mixture sets slowly, starting off quite soft like Plasticine and slowly getting harder. In effect you have an hour or so before the mixture gets too stiff to work and it's pretty hard after three hours and can be handled after that.

Colour when set is pale grey.

Epoxy liquid Adhesive

Similar to "Araldite Rapid" but much cheaper! Five to ten minute working time, full strength achieved in 60 minutes. Setting times are slower in cool conditions. You should be able to glue up at least six to ten handle/shank joints with each pack.

This is the only adhesive I use for fixing heads and handles to shanks! Also good for filling hollows or cracks in horn handles or mixed with wood or horn dust and used to fill larger gaps.

Perfect for fixing glass eyes in heads and many other uses.

ABRANET Abrasive Mesh

This was introduced to us by one of our customers and we were so impressed we immediately started stocking it! The Aluminium Oxide abrasive is presented on a fine mesh which allows the particles of wood or horn to drop through (use dust mask or dust-extraction unit where possible) so making the material clog less often.
We sell it in packs of FOUR pieces of a single grit size or mixed. Each piece is 70 mm x 125 mm (approx. 3 x 5 ") and can be folded or torn into thinner strips. It works well on horn as well as wood and antler and has quickly become our favourite abrasive!

We stock the four sizes we find most useful - 120 and 180 grit are most useful for starting off and the 400 and 600 grit are great for finishing, particularly on horn where it can be difficult to remove those last scratches before polishing. If you still need a finer abrasive we would recommend the 0000 grade steel wool below.
