What kit do you recommend for a beginner wood-carver?
If you are looking to test the whittling waters, we recommend our Snake Whittling Kit in Basswood. It is the simplest shape and easiest carving wood for beginners.
Or if you would like a more substantial kit, our Whittling Adventure Kit contains everything the beginner whittler needs (except for the knife) to begin his/her new hobby. This kit includes five basswood carving blanks, so it will provide you with several projects to practice and perfect your skills on.
Your kits don't include the knife, so what knife do you recommend we purchase?
Personally, we like the Morakniv Mora Companion Knife. However, just about any sharp, sturdy knife will do. To learn more about knife selection and safety tips, check out our Beginner Whittling Guide.
What age do you recommend for the Whittling Kits?
We officially recommend our Whittling Kits for ages 12 and up, as they are excellent for older students and even adults.
How do I choose the correct size cloak?
The important measurement to know when ordering one of our cloaks is the distance between the base of the neck and where you want the bottom hem to reach.
Our Small is 26” from the base of the neck to the bottom hem, our Medium is 36” from the base of the neck to the bottom hem, and our Large is 48” from the base of the neck to the bottom hem, so you may want to take this measurement to see which would option would be the best fit.
We also offer custom-length cloaks at no additional cost. To order a custom-length cloak, simply taking the measurement from the base of the neck to where you would like the bottom hem to reach.
Lengths 26” or less would be priced as a Small.
Lengths between 27-36” would be priced as a Medium.
Lengths between 36-52” would be priced as a Large.
If this sounds like a good option for you, simply select the corresponding size when adding the item to your cart and send us an email at email@example.com with your order number and custom measurement.
(The only difference between standard sizing and custom sizing is our custom cloaks are not returnable unless there is a product defect.)
