Below, we’ll clarify the types of common chisels and gouges for wood carving. After all, finding the right types of chisels can make easy work out of the most challenging tasks.
- Flat Chisels – Flat chisels are the most basic type of chisel. It is a tool with a handle on one side and a wide, flat cutting edge on the other side. They are ideal for making straight cuts, shaving and smoothing rough surfaces, creating details, and giving your projects a neat finish.

How Do I Choose a Chisel?
There’s a lot to consider when buying the best wood chisels set, but comfort is key. Every chisel should act like an extension of your hand and offer superior control and comfort during your wood carving sessions. So, when choosing the best chisels for wood carving, pay attention to the following factors:
- Wood Suitability – Consider the type of wood you will be carving and choose a chisel suitable for that type of wood. Harder woods require a stronger, more durable chisel.
- The Chisel Handle – The handle of the chisel should be comfortable and provide a secure grip. Consider the size and shape of the handle, and choose one that feels comfortable in your hand.
- Blade Material – Finding a chisel made from high-quality materials is important. High-carbon steel is solid and durable but requires more maintenance than stainless steel. Stainless steel is more rust-resistant and requires less maintenance but may not be as strong as high-carbon steel.
- Edge Shape – Chisel edges come in various shapes, including straight, beveled, and V-shaped. Choose the edge shape that best suits your needs.
- Blade Size – As we mentioned, chisel blades come in different sizes to perform different tasks. Consider the project size you will work on and choose an appropriate blade size.
- Cost – Chisels can range from a few dollars up to hundreds, depending on the type of steel, the handle, the craftsmanship, and the brand’s reputation. So, make sure you invest in the best tool for your budget.
