Why You Should Be Using USA-Made Wood Carving Tools for Your Projects

Woodcarving is an art that requires quality, precise, and durable tools. However, finding the best wood carving tools is easier said than done — thanks to the convenience of online shopping, there are now numerous outlets where beginning and experienced woodcarvers alike can purchase the tools they need. With an overwhelming number of choices, one way to ensure that you’re purchasing quality tools is to search for those that are manufactured in the USA. 

At Ramelson, we’ve been handcrafting wood carving tools in the United States for over half a century. As a true American manufacturer, we’re honored to have recently partnered with Made in the USA Tools, an organization committed to supporting our country by promoting American manufacturers and the selection of tools they offer. Made in the USA Tools partners with manufacturers who produce tools that meet criteria related to craftsmanship, durability, and price-value relationship. More than just wood carving, we believe that projects of any kind require quality tools if you want quality results. In this blog, we’ll look at some of the advantages you get when you purchase tools from Ramelson and other American manufacturers.

5 Reasons to Use USA-Made Tools 

Tools manufactured in foreign countries have a reputation for being cheaply made — far too often the materials are inferior, the assembly process is filled with flaws, and the end product certainly isn’t designed to last compared to the tools that are manufactured by companies in the United States. When you buy American-made tools, you’re benefiting more than just yourself and the results of your project. Here are a few reasons why to always buy American!


When you purchase USA-made tools, you can rest assured that you’re investing in a reliable product built with premium materials. Many American manufacturers like Ramelson use the finest materials for their tools. This means you get tools that offer better results and will outlast cheaper imports. 


The United States has regulated just about everything with tool manufacturing, from product development to the actual manufacturing process. Tools manufactured in the US are required to meet high standards before they are deemed safe, so you can rest assured the products you purchase are safe. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for tools manufactured overseas — you don’t always know what you’re getting, which is a risk you don’t want to take with any of your projects, especially those related to woodworking. 


Another reason to purchase USA-made tools is because it’s nice knowing that there is a company and people that you can reach to help take care of your needs should you ever have a problem. Foreign tools, and all products for that matter, seem to be more challenging when it comes to customer service and typically are not backed by the same types of warranty coverage or return eligibility as USA-made products because the seller knows they’re not built to last.


Purchasing tools made in the USA for wood carving or any project has an impact on the lives and well-being of your neighbors. Whenever you purchase USA-made tools, you’re fueling the economy, supporting the hard-working people who manufacture them, and creating new job opportunities in manufacturing and a variety of other related industries.


Did you know that purchasing American-made tools can actually benefit the environment? American manufactures must adhere to both federal and local regulations designed to protect the environment and improve sustainability. Foreign tools that you will find on the market often come from countries that are lacking immensely when it comes to eco-friendly practices. 

You simply can’t go wrong with purchasing American-made tools. They exceed many of the foreign tools you’ll find on the market in terms of craftsmanship, durability, and value.
