Henry Taylor Sculpture Tools Review By: I.Ball

This Henry Taylor sculpture tools review covers the wood sculpture tools produced by Henry Taylor Tools of Sheffield, England.

The Henry Taylor sculpture tool range consists of 11 different tools which include a variety of allongee chisels/gouges, a 'V' tool, a spoon tool and two curved tools.

These well made tools are made using traditional skills and are made purely from British materials which includes the tools being made with Sheffield steel.

With the combination of good steel and the steel being heat treated using an advanced treatment, the blade's keep a very good edge.

The blades are hand forged just like the best of the old carving tools to ensure that each individual tool has the best metallurgical qualities combined with a correctly shaped blade.

The tools are each fitted with a heavy duty Ash handle which has a leather washer shock absorber and a steel ferrule at either end. The purpose of the ferrules are to help prevent the handle from splitting-out.

The ferrule at the striking end is particularly a useful feature, one which is advantageous in this slightly more intensive line of carving.

Each of the Henry Taylor sculpture tools are made to the exacting standards of the Henry Taylor 'Acorn' brand and are given an 'Acorn' sticker to reflect this quality.

The 'Acorn' mark represents an instantly recognised world renowned brand made by Henry Taylor Tools since 1834.
