Types of Pumpkin Carving Tools

Types of Pumpkin Carving Tools

A few years ago, pumpkin carving was limited to the few general shapes that a paring or carving knife could eke out: triangles, a few teeth in a smiling mouth, round eyes. But that's no longer the case—pumpkin carving has reached the zenith of creativity and craftiness, thanks to tools that allow individual expressions on this Halloween mainstay. Those include a few types of tools developed specifically for the holiday, and a few others borrowed from general home maintenance departments, that make creating a fantastic pumpkin easier than ever. Try saws, carving knives, scoops, V-edge tools, awls, pokers, tracers, linoleum cutters, hole cutters, wood gouges, drills, and cookie cutters.

Saws

With a handle and serrated blade, saws of varying sizes are used to carve shapes and lines in pumpkins. They come in miniature versions, too, and often are narrow or have changeable blades.

Product Features

Product Features

Pumpkin carving tools are fairly straightforward: they cut, they scoop, they scrape. But the detail that the tools can accomplish varies on how each tool is made and what it's intended to do. How well they do those tasks also differs based on the pumpkin carving tools' product features. Those include blades, handles, and materials. Here's a short overview of the product features to consider and how they affect the use of your pumpkin carving tools.

Blades

Read the product label to see what the blades are made of and how they are sharpened. If blades are interchangeable, see how easy it is to swap out blades.

Handles

Handles can be plastic or wood; plastic may break more easily, while wood may be stronger.

Material

The portion of the tool that does the work may be plastic or metal. Thinner plastic may be less strong when carving the pumpkin surface.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

There's no need to purchase pumpkin carving tools each year. If you buy the right tools for the kind of pumpkin carving you enjoy, they can and should last. To ensure they do, review just a few purchase considerations. Those include care and storage, durability, and adaptability. Here's a quick overview of what you need to know before you buy.

Care and Storage

Review the cleaning and storage requirements of pumpkin carving tools; some may be dishwasher-safe, while others may need to be hand-washed and have their wood handles oiled.

Durability

Choose pumpkin carving tools that are made well and strong enough to carve and cut without breaking.

Adaptability

Some pumpkin carving tools have flexibility of use: a power drill is a widely used household item, cookie cutters are used in baking, and awls have a variety of uses in crafting.
