  18. Bone Carving Tools.

    I do a bit of bone carving from time to time and as is usual for me, I make my own tools. These are a few gravers made from several different types of steel. Some are carbide, some HSS and others old files. The critical factor is the hardness and the bevel on the cutting edge. The handles...
