Mary May Beginner Woodcarver Set

The Mary May Beginner Woodcarver Set shown on Mary’s website and pictured here consists of following Swiss Made Fishtail Tools: *V-tool #12 -6mm #3F-6mm #3F -14mm #5F-14mm #7F-6mm #7F-14mm.

The “F” stands for “Fish Tail”

Fishtail chisels and gouges are useful because they flare out from the shaft at the cutting end – resembling a ‘fish tail’.  They let you see the wood you are carving better as the narrow shafts do not block you view. Fishtail gouges allow you to get into tighter corners and more restricted areas.   For a thorough understanding of “Sweeps” and “mm” …see our page on “Understanding Woodcarving Tools”

Mary’s love for Fishtail tools is no surprise to us!   Fishtails tools are a joy to use as they are a bit lighter in weight and have a well-balanced feel to them.

Tool Rolls and Leather Strop


Your Swiss Made tools will last time if you treat them properly.  They will keep their edge extremely well and generally require a stropping only.    A simply stropping on leather will keep them in tip-top shape for hours of carving enjoyment.  Do not sharpen them on a regular basis – only when they require it.

Protect your tools and yourself …consider a 12 Pocket Tool Roll in which to store your tools!

Here is our Chipping Away Leather Strop …choose it and a bar of green honing compound.
