  • Prosfora Seal

    Hello,

    I'm hoping someone might be able to tell me what sort of tools I would need to carve a prosfora seal. I attached a picture of what it looks like. Could I use a set of gouges to carve it or would I need to get chip carving knives instead? The prosfora seal is a bread stamp that you press on the dough before baking it. I want to avoid power tools. Thanks!

    Looks like chip carving knives might be the best solution for doing this work.

      Tinwood Would chip carving knives get deep enough to make a good seal you think? Is it possible to carve this with palm tool gouges like what flexcut offers? I ask because I would like to try relief carving too. Thanks.

        Chip carving, no problem.

            I agree that the seal looks like a chip-carved device.
            Proper chip carving knives of good quality (and carving sharp) should work.

            Stamped into the dough, how do you stop the dough from flowing in the baking process and filling in the stamp?
            I enjoy baking various bready things. Maybe carve a stamp in birch?

              You just press the stamp down for about 20 seconds or so and then pull it off right before baking the dough. Thanks for all of the help guys!

                I have a small chip carving knife for more delicate work and a larger blade for all else. Never use the stab knife. I find the Flexcut handle awkward to use for chip carving. Been chip carving for about i6 yrs.

                  Drake makes a nice chip carving knife. You really have to learn how to keep the knife sharp too. Very important for clean chips.
                  If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.
