Straight chisels are preferred for lettering, but are also suitable for chip carving and for smoothing straight or slightly convex surfaces in figure sculpting. The skewed variant can be drawn across the surface and cuts into corners more easily.
DICTUM Carving Tools
Our sculptor’s gouges, available in a wide choice of sweeps and widths, are made of premium German carbon steel, hand-forged under a spring hammer by traditional company Henry Taylor of Sheffield, UK. This gives them supreme sharpness and excellent durability and makes them easy to resharpen.
  • Consistent hardness through modern hardening and annealing methods
  • Ready-to-use bevel
Hand-forged under a spring hammer for a dense structure:
  • Makes the steel stronger
  • Ensures long edge lives

Rounded octagonal handle of red beech with Shellack surface:
  • For easy tool alignment
  • Prevents the tool from rolling off the worktop
  • Provides a non-slip grip
  • Consistently thin blade for perfect balance and precise control
  • Wide forged-on shoulder with straight contact surface for optimum force transmission
  • Colour anodised, polished inner faces reduce light reflection during use
  • Perfectly polished outer faces for smooth guidance

    Most of the products we sell as a trading company we produce ourselves. Our brand Herdim has been synonymous with musical instrument making products for more than 100 years. Our design department staff devises our products from scratch - from simple component drawings for the development of hand tools to complex component groups in the field of power tools. All materials such as cutting steels, casting materials or handle materials are selected according to their intended use and produced according to our specifications. If possible, we produce the components for our tools ourselves. Complex manufacturing processes (casting, deep drawing, forging, lasering) are carried out by specialised companies. We monitor the processes and carefully check the finished components. We carry out the final assembly of the individual components, as well as the cutting of wood and the bottling of finishing agents ourselves. Our brands include products for musical instrument making (Herdim), as well as tools and machines (DICTUM). Further DICTUM brands include: Sinensis, Lignea, Kunsuto, RosinLegnin, Robusuta, Shinko…
