making carving tools

Hey guys, I orderred some tool steel stock various sizes and have done some forge work, used to be a horse shoer, and intend to make carving tools, turning tools chisels etc. Anyone want to throw in some free advice before I start this process. Have the handle making down pat already. All of it is round stock, thinking I should have orderred some flat stock also. Dean Calif.

Been seeing the never lick a steakknife tag, I made that mistake licking some mayonaise off the other day and cut my lip. Duh!

Hi Dean

See if you can find someone with some broken or worn out bandsaw blades to discard. The steel should be tough enough and flexible enough to make great carving tools.
