All Dolan Tools are individually made from high carbon knife steel, firmly set in hand-turned hardwood handles with brass rivets or ferrules.
- Handles are soaked in an oil/resin bath to make them moisture resistant.
- Each tool is hand sharpened. All tools are guaranteed and designed to take a lot of hard work!
- When not in use, tools should be kept clean and dry. Even a simple wiping with a cloth will work. A light coat of oil applied to both the steel and wood handle from time to time is recommended.
- Dolan tools may be resharpened if they begin to dull. We recommend using a whetstone to bring edges back to original keenness. Do not use power grinders or files as they will permanently damage the carbon steel.
Miniature series tools are made from the same high quality knife steel as the S series, but have even smaller, more delicate carving loops. Adequate handle length allows average size hands to work with small tools. 5-1/2" overall length, 1/4" diameter loops.
