STRYI, first Ukrainian manufacturer of wood carving tools.
Let's start at the start
In 2009 we decided to start to produce high grade well-made instrument, realizing the responsibility before the people who will work with our instruments.
Our name is the same as the place, where we’re located — picturesque city Stryi in western Ukraine. As we’re living near the Carpathian mountains, we’re familiar with wood carving as well as it’s a part of Ukrainian ethnicity.
For making our tools we use the steel marked like the USA analogue W1-7 (Y8), which recommended itself as good at working with hand tools. On based of producing we use the full control on each of its stages - template preparation, shaping, heat treatment, polishing, sharpening and adjustment. We put our soul in what we’re doing and try to improve our craftsmanship every day to make you satisfied with instrument you choose. But if you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you already know that.
