Thanks haikai yep the swiss are sure good at making chisels and pocket knives. I discovered that I needed to get good quality stuff to deal with the hammering I give them.

More Progress pics

Marcus,

that wood is beautiful and I love all the chisel marks. It looks like a real Hawaiian piece out by the city of refuge. NICE!

Fantastic start. A new masterpiece to come.
A question: what would you recommend best: Pfeil or Flexcut chisels?

Thanks a lot,

Benjamin.

Marcus,

Whattacha got going on here? First we saw the elbow, now a chest waist and leg. He looks very "Marcusy", but I have no idea what he's gonna be. Could be lots of things I guess....but he's a beauty so far!

Harro - yes this is the long awaited Akua progress finally, this guy is being filmed for a low brow art doco so it has been a slower progress on him than I normally do - hopefully the DVD will be out early next year.
Sneaky Tiki - thanks for the compliments.
Benzart - I noticed your absence mate hope you are doing OK - nice to hear from you as always.
Benella I dont have a favourite chisel - I like them strong and sharp.
GMan - thank you
Hewey - wheres those pics mate - thanks for the compliments
Peddro - Hewey kinda beat me to answering your question - my new spokesperson - good to hear from you though.
