  1. Excellent tools for lettering or similar uses by Chris Pye 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2014

    I am new at wood carving; however, have been a professional calligrapher, glass and metal engraver for more than thirty years. I have always had the very best in tools for all of my work having purchased even the most rare of the tools made during the last 150 years to the most current tools on the market. I have found these tools to be everything that I hoped for and would ever want in lettering and creating my craft using wood as the medium. Congratulations on the best quality ever!

    Having purchsed them a few months back,I've only just managed to get a chance to use these wonderful tools....They're nearly too beautiful to use but I bit the bullet...they're fabulous... razor sharp and easy to use. Thanks to all involved in their manufacture, I'm over the moon.
