Flexcut Carving Knives, Starter Set, with Ergonomic Handles and Carbon Steel Blades, Set of 3 (KN500) at $44.49 - https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B003Z7XNUO

This is lower than even ccc has record of. These are very sharp, good quality carving and whittling knives.

I purchased with level 5 cutting gloves and some good basswood blocks.
(like these gloves: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SQX8GMD).

Would this make a good whittling starter kit?

I see that CCC had it $36 back in September (new 3rd party).

I got these along with knife gloves, a book, basswood, and bandaids to put together a whittling starter kit, but caution and close supervision is a necessity if older youth are the intended recipients as these are very sharp knives. There is lots of info on wood carving forums and sites, and YouTube, that can help the learning process.

Carving forums and sites also say the Morakniv 120 is a good starter knife (https://www.amazon.com/Morakniv-C...B004GATX62), and several speak highly of the Helvie Knives economy line as a quality starter.

Are you familiar with the Little Shavers [littleshavers.com] kit? If so, where does this fall on the spectrum of starter kits?

I'm not familiar with little shavers, but they, and the knives available from them, are well spoken of on the forums at https://forum.woodcarvingillustra...le+shavers.
