Our Premium Beginners Palm Set features broad, short knob handles in the European tradition. The handles are cut from fine cherry wood with a polished brass ferrule for strength, stability and long working life.
These very deep gouges are designed with a parabolic curve. They are designed to be rolled up to 90 degrees and change shape from a deep #11 to a smooth #3 in one continuous cut. The thumbnail grind keeps the corners from digging into the wood as the tool is rolled.
Palm Tools included: FR725 #11X x 3/16", FR925 #11X x 5/16", FR926 #11X x 3/8", FR927 #11X x 1/2".
As the name implies, this set was made for miniature carving. Model-makers, as well as those who enjoy carving fine detail, find these tools quite handy. Ranging in size from 1/8-inch down to 1/16-inch, these tools make others seem like crayons when you really need a sharp pencil.
