Carving Tools with a Story
Robin and JoJo Wood have a passion for their craft and are key in keeping traditional tool making alive. Their workshop is located in Sheffield in the UK and along with a handful of old tradespeople they nestle amongst modern apartments and office blocks ensuring century old skills are passed on. There is a symmetry between their location and their toolmaking. By using modern technology to laser cut blades they can put their energy into crafting each tool in the traditional way. By blending old and new technologies they can bring the best of Sheffield toolmaking to modern day Wood Tamers.
All Robin Wood axes are ground by hand on a huge water stone. Sure, grinding belts could do the same job but a grinding stone such as this will last over a year saving masses of waste. Each hook knife is bent and sharpened by hand in batches allowing for greater speed, consistency and accuracy.
Each carving tool is created with the same care and precision that you will use crafting your own item. That’s why we love them.
