Stone carving tools
Italian made Stone carving tools and stoneworking tools for the hand carving.
Tools for carvers, sculptors, stone artists, and artisans.
Applications: Stone carving tools are used by stone carvers, engravers and sculptors for producing stone reliefs, tombstones, sculptures, high-relief in Gravestones, memorial headstones.
Here you find a wide range of hammers, mallets, and chisels to subtract material away from the blocks; and you find chisels at different angles to make letterforms, to lettering on monuments and make gravestones.
Stoneworking Tools for carving marble and granite can be divided into 2 families:
- Percussions tools: hammers, chisels, and mallets
- Abrasive tools: rasps and scrapers
With the right stone tools, sculptors are able to model a piece of stone (though many steps: percussion removal, rasping, sanding, and finishing), and create incredible artistic objects: statues, religious iconography, facades for cathedrals and abstract shapes.
Stone carving pneumatic tools
Pneumatic Hammer (or Air hammer) is a percussion tool used by sculptors. The advantage with the air hammer is that it is softer than hitting with a hand hammer but it hits so much more frequently.
Pneumatic hammer for stones uses the same tools we have in the manual stone carving: flat chisels, teeth chisels, bush-hammer and so on.
