Product Description

Are you ready to “up your game”? The 13 Piece Professional Tool Set contains the largest,  strongest, sharpest, U-V tools that we carry in our online shop. They have a wide range of carving blade sizes.

These tools are currently discounted because the cases have broken zippers. Don’t let the flimsy case with the broken zipper fool you. Nor the cheap cheesy vegetable peeler that my supplier recently added to this set without informing me in advance. The real value is in the sharp quality U-V tools. These are my favorite U-V tools.

High Quality Fruit Carving Tools Included in the 13 Piece Pro Set

  • 5 U-cutter tools with 10 different size blades
  • 3 V-cutter tools with 6 different size blades
  • U and V cutter tools are high quality with very sharp blades and are 8 1/2 inches long.
  • The U and V tools vary from 1/4 inch wide to 1 and 1/4 inches wide.
  • Victorinox Paring Knife
  • Fruit carving knife
  • Divider (sometimes known as compass)
  • Diamond Cutter and Loop Tool
  • Hook Line Cutter

They are very sharp, very strong and very sturdy.

The U-cutters in this Pro Vegetable and Fruit Carving Set are great for carving smooth complete circles and because these tools are long, they will cut all the way through honeydew and cantaloupe melons and pumpkins. They are useful for carving smooth heart shapes, too.

And of course you can carve all sorts of flower petals from lots of different vegetables and fruits with all of these sharp U and V tools. You can learn more in our video lessons in Amazing Carving with Jimmy Zhang.

One warning, be careful when you handle these fruit carving tools. They are very sharp and you can cut yourself. Also, be aware that the V tools are sharp enough to leave dents in counter tops made of wood, solid surfaces like Corion, and plastic laminate surfaces like Formica. So handle them carefully. Don’t just throw them in the sink when it’s time to wash them. I learned this the hard way and as a result, I have a few nicks in my counter top and kitchen sink from these very sharp V tools.

In addition the the U and V tools, a good quality paring knife is included in this set. Also contained in this 13 piece Pro Carving kit is a high quality compass/divider that is useful for etching perfect circles when preparing to carve designs into watermelons and other melons, It’s great when you want to do symmetrical carvings and precise designs.

diamond and round loop tool

Closer look at the diamond cutter and round loop tool.

The ribbon tool in this set has a diamond cutter on one end and a round loop tool on the other end. These are used to carve grooves, for example, veins into leaf patterns in watermelon carvings. You can cut in one stroke what would normally take 2 strokes of a knife. The round loop tool is for carving rounded grooves into your carvings.

The hook line tool is for more advanced carving.You’ll find it handy when you get to an advanced level of carving.

There is also a curved U-V tool in the set with a reverse V cutter at one end. It’s great for deeper curved edges.

Now, you may ask when you should get my Smooth U-V Cutters, and when you should get this 13 Piece Pro Set.

If you are a brand new beginner getting started with my 101 Course or any of the lessons in the 101 Course, I recommend that you start with the Smooth U-V set. They are a good solid basic set at a lower price.

If you plan to get my lessons, Amazing Carving with Jimmy Zhang, then I recommend that you invest in this 13 Piece Pro Tool set. You can get by with using using the basic Smooth U-V Cutters for the lessons in Amazing Carving with Jimmy Zhang. But, you will find it easier to get better results with the sharper, longer tools in the 13 Piece Pro Tool set.

If you are an avid carver and you already have the Smooth U-V Cutter 6 piece set, you’ll enjoy adding the larger, sharper tools with more cutting blade sizes to your tool collection.

If you plan on getting the 17 Lesson Collection and don’t have any tools yet, I recommend the 13 Piece Pro set and you can skip the Smooth U-V 6 piece set.
