Pfeil carving tools are made on old craftsmanship traditions by a family owned company that spans three generations over a full century. All Pfeil tools are forged from a steel alloy produced especially for them. This special steel ensures outstanding elasticity and edge-holding properties. Pfeil tools come pre-sharpened and ready to use, honed razor sharp. The ash octagonal carving tool handles are both comfortable in the hand, give a firm grip and don't roll of the work bench.
