Tools of carpet weaving, according to various centers of carpet weaving are slightly different and divided into two groups: Turkish and Persian tools. The highest difference concerns knife of carpet weaving, which in Turkish weave, has a hook-shaped head, but in Persian weave, carpet is woven by fingers.

Comb, scissors and hook are utilized in both methods notwithstanding some slight differences such as weight or size and feature of tools.

Although the role of these tools is not as important as other instruments, such as loom, warp and raw materials, but quality of tools and their application makes a great deal on weavers prosperity and success. One is supposed to fix some thousand knots on carpet, benefiting those tools and to realized images of carpet, therefore quality and type of tools, sharpness, lack of coarseness or outstanding points on knife edge or stick and other factors are very effective, not only in right weaving and accelerating the job, but have a direct effect on the nerve and moral of weaver.
