Why We Like It: The three-tool carving kit contains super sharp flexible carving knife, a V-tool and a serrated pumpkin scoop all with soft grip handles. The serrated scoop can be used to clean out seeds and stringy pulp (also works for other winter squash). The V-Tool works well for cutting out zigzag designs for teeth, nose, and eyes or around the lid. The flexible 5-inch carving knife blade cuts out other patterns and trims well. The kit is not  just for pumpkins: each of the three tools can be used on other fruits and vegetables. The serrated scoop also works well on hard ice cream. All tools are kept secure in a knife roll.

Details: The 3-piece stainless steel Messermeister Pumpkin Carving Set is housed in a nylon 5-inch zippered storage case. The tools are dishwasher safe. Retails for $20 to $26 online (depends where purchased) . Available at,, and
