GRANITE AND HARD STONE CARVING TOOLS
While it is true that granite carves differently from marble or other stones,
it also provides distinct advantages. Granite does not bruise, so it is possible
to rough out closer to your finished dimensions. It is also possible to achieve a
variety of interesting surface finishes by using various bushing tools.
We recommend using flat blade chisels instead of tooth chisels when carving
hard stone. We also recommend
carbide-tipped tools, since steel chisels will require frequent grinding and re-tempering
when used on granite. Consider using a "Dallett" or Type D pneumatic tool if you do much
of your work in granite. It has more impact than the Type B tool and will save time,
particularly when roughing out.
