Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

If you want to get serious in wood carving the best option is to buy a set of knives made for that purpose.

I have a set of swiss made Pfeil wood carving tools that I accumulated over the years.

I checked, and Amazon has a good looking set. I can't say what the quality is but they look good and are a lot less expensive than a set of Pfeil chisels.

Woodcraft.com has a good selection of high quality tools. https://www.woodcraft.com/blog_entri...s-for-carving#

You might want to go to the library and get a book on wood carving and then decide what kind of carving you want to do.

Nah, I let other people do it, then I go to carving shows and buy their stuff.
Much easier that way.
