Knives for Marking, Violins, and Carving
Lee Valley Tools has acquired Hock Tools. The transition is under way as we ship them inventory and they work to get a new Hock Tools website up and running and processing orders. If an item here is "Out of Stock", it may be in stock at Lee Valley, and is definitely on order and being produced at the factory!
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the Hock item number, and they’ll be glad to advise if they have it, or when they expect it. Note that pricing will remain the same, and shipping will be at no charge.
The blades of these comfortable carving knives are made from our high carbon steel, hardened to Rc62 (if that sounds familiar it's because that's the same steel and hardness as our high-carbon knives and plane blades) easy to hone to the sharpest possible edge.
Handles are jatoba with nothing more than an oil finish.
