Denny Carving Tools have been well respected and time honored. Mr. Denny retired about 4 years ago. Mike Shipley apprenticed with Denny and then took over manufacturing the line of carving tools. Mike’s company is called OCCT Tools (Ozark Country Carving Tools). In addition to making the tools, Mike is also an accomplished carver and author. He, therefore knows the importance of producing a quality tool. O1 tool steel is a high carbon quality steel and used exclusively by OCCT. Finally, by forging the blades by hand prior to tempering to 60Hrc assures they will hold their edge extremely well.

During a Rick Jensen bark carving class at Chipping Away, Rick was using a new bent gouge made for him by Denny/OCCT.
It was a 5/8" #8 Sweep with a slight bend in the blade. Everyone in the class went gah-gah over it! ...so we had a bunch made up
for us! They have proven very popular and we keep them in stock all the time!
Jensen also added a 1/2 Skew knife that is great for getting into tight corners. Of course we stock these skew knives as well.
