You can carve an incredible face, but if you don’t get the eyes right, what’s the point? Used correctly, these American-made eye punches from U.J. Ramelson will give you perfect eyes every time.
U.J. Ramelson makes two types of eye punches: round and oval. You use the round punches to create human eyes and the oval punches to form animal eyes. To make round eyes you position the properly sized punch over the otherwise completed face and rotate it while pushing on the handle. We’re not exactly sure how to use the oval punches properly.
They manufacture round punches in 3mm, 5mm, 7mm, 1/8″, 5/32″, 7/32″, 1/4″, and 9/32″ sizes with either palm or stub handles. Oval punches are also available in the same sizes with palm or stub handles, except one oval punch is 5.5mm instead of 5mm. All the punches measure approximately 6″ in length.
A single punch retail for $12 to $14. You can also pick up a set of three round punches for $37 or a set of two oval punches for $26, including shipping and handling.
