Carving is an all encompassing word. Just a few things come to mind, figures, and spoons and kitchen ware. Thing is they all use slightly different tools.

For just a starter set of knives I think Flexcut offers the best deal They may not be everyones favorite handle, but anyone could use them. Some brands are just not loveable, but some folks still like their feel. IF he likes carving he could grow the tools from there. I think they are project specific, and Lord only knows there are a bunch of variations, on handle, through blade.

If he might want to make a few spoons, Highland offers a nice starter kit.

You know him, if you think he is a little clumsy, or could get cut a chainmail carvers glove would round out either.
