With Christmas arriving and the new year imminent i have received a £20 gift that I am thinking of spending on improving my carving kit ready to kick off the new year. My current kit is a bit hit and miss with some gouges, chisels and V tools that were either rescued out of a bin or given to me to help me along. I’m still only a rookie and my sharpening skills are still being worked on.

So with all that in mind does anyone have any advice/tips/suggestions as to what to look into getting. If I can I would like to support a small businesses with a handmade/hand forged ethic. I’m aware my budget is small but I’m just looking around at the moment as to what is best to do with the money.

Any input greatly recieved , many thanks Bo☺
