Hi Marty,
Good gift to introduce your son to woodcarving. I think it’s true with all styles of woodcarving, but especially with chip carving, technique is crucial! Learning proper technique is key when it comes to getting good results. Also, good technique leads to SAFE carving. Nothing discourages a beginner as much as a nasty cut.

Now time for my suggestion (at the risk of self-promotion :-), I’ve put together My Chip Carving Kits for any budget that helps beginners find success quickly. Each Kit has everything needed to get started along with free videos so he knows what to do and how to start! Many carvers say starting out by learning chip carving is a good move.

I like your gift idea as well as your first name!

I gotta show you the most recent Diamond Deluxe Chip Carving Knives I just finished. Bloodwood handles are sweet! :-)
