The company Kirschen tools from Remscheid offers over 1000 different carving tools, which can be categorized according to two criteria:
- The shape of the blade, the stitch pattern, which the tool leaves in wood for a vertical one tick.
- The shape of the tool shank: This is the part of the cutting edge up to the beginning of the handle.
The random pictures are numbered from 1 to 11. Of 1 = straight edge, to 11 = deeply-hollowed cutter, drill.
