Guess what guys, it’s that time of year again! It’s time to bring pumpkin carving to the top of your priority list and drop all non-essential tasks to ensure that your house is sufficiently adorned with spooky pumpkins, flickering awway with candle lights and making this the best ever Halloween. Man, I love Halloween.

One problem we all face is getting our pumpkins carved just right; we battle away with all different types of kitchen knives trying to get the detailing just right, and doing our best not to carve out too much for the mouth or eyes, because otherwise pumpkin catastrophe is just around the corner when you create a half-wit pumpkin who looks more lopsided than spooky.

Pumpkin carving is very delicate art, and the problem lies in that the utensils we try and use to create our perfect halloween pumpkins are just not designed for the intricate edges and curves we need to carve out of these oversized orange balls.

Using a Pumpkin Carving Knife Kit

Don’t get me wrong, this Warren Brass and Walnut pumpkin carving kit is not the first and only tool designed for this purpose. BUT, it is the first one that does a good job at pumpkin carving and gives you half a chance of having the best jack-o-lanterns on the street.

As you can see from the picture over on the left, it is a quality bit of kit and looks like a pumpkin carving kit should; classically designed, with a great looking solid handle and a good range of knife blades that you can swap in and out in a flash.

The knife blades range from a heavy duty saw blade to help you do the guts of the heavy lifting; cutting out the top of the pumpkin and scooping out all the fleshy innards. The blades get progresively finer to help you do the more detailed work; cutting out the mouth and eyes and right down to a super fine knife blade that will let you put eyelashes on your lantern, if you so wish!

Quality wins for Pumpkin Carving

I would say that 90% of the pumpkin carving kits we have seen are really lacking in quality. Weak, flimsy carving blades that can snap, or plastic handles that make it difficult to properly direct the blade and feel like they are going to fall apart in your hand any moment.

It’s worth pointing out that the best pumpkin carving kits tend to replicate paring knives used in the kitchen; short and strong, reliable blades with chunky handles to help you get a real good grip and keep control of the carving knife.

This is really one of the best pumpking carving kits we have seen, and would highly recommend it for budding jack-o-lantern artists, or for anyone who is fed up with limp pumpkins and lopsided eyes. It looks great, is reliably built, easy to clean and safe, with a big brass divider between the handle and the knife blades.
