I had this idea to try to get into some wood carving. Not carpentry proper or anything strictly utility-oriented, but some small arts bullshit like figurines or what not. What would be the minimum toolkit necessary for it? I don't want to invest super big into it in case I just pick it up and it doesn't really work out.

A set of carving knives is pretty damn cheap. Probably some wood chisels and a hammer too. Maybe a handsaw to cut your stock close to the right size...

The absolute minimum would be a piece of sandpaper and a lot of patience. You can make anything with that.

>minimum toolkit
a pen knife. one single solitary pen knife like your grandpops carried.

Start with very sharp and reasonably sturdy blade.
You can buy whittling/woodworking/woodcarving knifes for a handful of your local currency, probably. If you cant or don't want to, improvise. Just stay safe and mind your fingers.

if you were actually interested in this you'd be doing it with whatever you have at hand (look up whittling). save your money
