Inexpensive Sand Carving Tools - Pastry Knives

proudly hosted by
sons of the beach sand castle wizards

A basic smoothing/shaping tool is essential for creating great sand sculpture. Here are some of our favorites....

Ask a serious sand sculptor what his/her most-used tool is and s/he'll probably wave a 3/4" pastry knife at you.You should be able to find these knives in various shapes and sizes anywhere they sell cake decorating items.We order the most popular size (3/4") by the box load and sell them for as little as $4 each. (They arrive rounded on the end, we square them up for you so you can use them for doors/windows as well.)
