    I have started experimenting with wood carving, and found it to be a very enjoyable hobby. As with all beginnings you have to start somewhere, and I began with a couple of knives and some hobby chisels, that resembled some pretty blunt objects. They were not very expensive so I did not expect much. I had been looking for a decent set of chisels to practice with, and I did not have $400 dollars or more to buy a typical German made set. Many carving articles recommending buying them one at a time due to the cost of a quality chisel. I was adamant that I wanted a fairly complete set, so that I could determine which ones would be the most useful to me. Mastercarver was the starter set I decided on and I purchased the detail set. I wanted to carve faces and figurines and such. I got my set for Christmas and was very surprised to find that it is very good quality, sharp, right out of the box, and included an assortment that will fill my needs now and in the future. Initially, my intention was to start with Mastercarver, figure out my favorite tools and then buy the high end German Chisels a piece at a time. My experience thus far has caused me to change my approach, and if I do need any different chisels, I will now purchase the Mastercarver Chisels as they are comfortable, hold an edge well, and so far, have only needed to be stropped after use. They are a great, quality set, with a sizable assortment, delivered at an excellent price point and have exceeded my expectations. Great job Mastercarver!
