|Palm tools are a good starting point for small project such as caricatures, walking sticks or tableware. They are shorter in length, offering better control since the cutting edge is closer to the controlling hand. They are available in very small sizes for carving details proportional to the work. These fixed handled palm tools are constructed from solid Ash and high carbon steel. The fixed handle version allows for the faster tool changes over the unhandled tools, which need to be used with an interchangeable handle.
