Good for getting into tight places like under wings, and for under cutting. Can
also be used to make a fuzzy raised hair on flat work or mammal carvings.
Some carvers prefer this for running quill lines.
Very similar to the standard writing pen, but has the end of the tip ground
symmetrically, and the end is perfectly round. This is a good choice when you
need it for more than just signing your work like for "Pointillism" or drawing,
and the "choke point" created at the end of the tip also keeps the pen body much
cooler for much longer than the standard writing pen. The end of the tip for the
9M pen is about 0.040" in diameter (1mm). Look at the #19S pens if you want
something similar but bigger.
A variation of the #9M, but it has been ground so that it comes to a sharp
point. Good for when you need to do very fine dots or fine surface lines. It is
sharp, so you may need to sandpaper the tip down a little bit to your liking.
Like the the small skew, but can turn a corner real easily. This is the most
popular pen that we sell. Get this one and the #18 when ordering one of the
Cheryl Dow books!
Smaller version of the ever popular number twelve pen tip. Song bird carvers
will really like this pen.
This pen design is from Bob Guge. Great for burning in primary's, or anywhere
you would otherwise use a pen to burnish or depress wood. Instead of depressing
and moving the pen for each area along a line "like you would do with other
pens", this pen is designed to act like a ski. Just put it at the start of your
feather edge, and follow it. Saves you a lot of time.
