Helvie Knives is proud to introduce the Dave Stetson Signature Series Knives. Caricature Carver of America woodcarver Dave Stetson and Helvie Knives have been working together to bring out a new line of knives with a new style of blade.

Dave Stetson, co-creator and founding member of CCA had a vision along with carving buddy Steve Prescott, to form a group of top caricature carvers whose purpose would be to promote and elevate the public's perception of caricature carving. That was in 1989 and along with 13 other guys and gal with the same purpose, the CCA began. He served as the first CCA Vice President in 1990 & 1991 and followed in 1992 and 1993 as President.

Dave is a full time woodcarver who teaches his brand of caricature as an exaggeration of realism. In order to exaggerate realism, you have to know what realism is, including anatomy, proportion, structure and form. His favorite subject matter is cowboys and human form with a smattering of animals, all in round sculpture form. He also carves Santa's and other holiday themes. He has won dozens of carving awards around the country, including best of shows. Dave lives and works in Scottsdale, AZ with his longtime partner Michele Carville (also a woodcarver.) His work can be purchased directly by contacting Dave, or in Peter Engler Designs, Branson, MO. At Christmas time his Santa's are available through FolkWorks Gallery, Evanston, IL.
