Convinced of the consistently high quality of the tools and the breadth of the range, bildhau has been distributing woodcarving tools from the PFEIL company for many years.
PFEIL was initially founded in 1902 in Langenthal, Switzerland, as a cutlers for professional knives and surgical instruments. It was not until the 1940s that PFEIL produced its first carving tools. Even then, the quality convinced professional and amateur carvers and carving schools, and the tools sold like hot cakes. The family business is now in its third generation.
PFEIL chisels, gouges and gouge feet, like all other PFEIL carving tools, are forged from a high-alloy special steel and are manufactured entirely in Switzerland. The carving tools are supplied ground ready for use and are razor sharp.
