Detail woodcarving knives are specialized tools that excels in relief wood carving, a type of woodcarving that creates a three-dimensional image by removing material from a flat piece of wood. Detail knives have a small and sharp blade with a thin tip that allows the carver to make precise and detailed cuts into the wood. These knives are used to create fine cuts such as face details, folds of clothing or other small details. They are also used for other craft work such as modeling and sculpting. Detail knives are not suitable for removing large amounts of material and are usually used to create finishing touches on a project. Detail carving knives are smaller than other types of wood carving knives, giving the carver more control over the knife and allowing them to make precise, detailed cuts.
