I want to try carving, having never tried it, as I can see how it may be another string to my bow in my woodworking. I want to carve patterns, letters, rope borders, etc. but not carving figures. I would like to start in a small way in terms of hand-tools, starting with the basic essentials and building up as required. I see there are carving knives such as Flexcut and palm-held knives as well as chisel-style tools. Is anyone experienced enough to advise me of the best way to go please? ....and what would be a basic starter set.
