I had to hit the thesaurus to do it justice:
Crackerjack work! Jim dandy war club. I think it's splendid. Your carving is unsurpassed.

Thanks Ben, About 90% of it i used a 1/8" parting tool, and the other 10% i used my recip Weecher with a 1/4" parting. I seem to have more control with out that 2 foot spinning cable getting in my way. I love the Weecher but some times the hand tools are quicker and easier for me.




When you use the hand parting tool, do you tap it with a mallet or do you just push it with your palm?

I agree with Pappy. That piece is statuesque, stunning, superb & symmetrical.
I think I want to give a club a try. I wonder if I can do one in Oak as 2" cherry is not accessable.

Loki, I use a "full size" chisel if thats what you call them (not a Palm chisel) and use both hands for control.

Ben, A compliment from you is always held in high regard!

Moon, Thanks!

Good form on the carvings and I like how the lines are laid out. Do you push your chisels? I use two hands as well but I pull, kinda like a "hara-kiri" style.

Here is the Samoan Apa Apai club i started the same time as the Kini Kini club. I spent some time on it today and got one side of it almost done. I had to stop, I felt like i was going blind after looking at all those tiny lines all day!

I really appreciate the straight lines you achieved, I HATE my parting tool, I've never been successful with it. In my mind they work great, in reality...a mess of splinters all over... I think this is where I need the most education. I'm working on an Inuit Storm Paddle, and trying to dress it up...wrecked it. Tried 2 different parting tools, some hand tools, now I'm just gonna ink it in. Friggin' hate it, when I can't figure it out. Sorry to rant. I just love your clean lines, that's what I'm after. Maybe show a picture of the exact tool you used.

Bravo...very, very nice work, Tikimecula. I agree with what Ben said...a straight line is hard to find...you nailed it. I really like the Apa, too. God is in the details! The Apa Apai was also carved in Tonga with smaller serrated sections. I just picked up a suitable blank today for one...hard to find the 2"-2 1/2" thickness in hardwoods that are straight and problem-free enough to get a good war club. Great, detailed chiseling...keep it up, man!

Surf, I have been calling it a Parting tool, in reality It's a veiner. It's shaped like a parting tool but real small Check the pics. That is a 1/4" Parting "v" next to it.

BK, Thanks! I should have made the Kini a little sharper? I need to stop buying books, every new book i get i see a nice looking club I'm gonna have to try.

Tikimecula,
You have very good control over that chisel, very impressive!
What books are you using for reference and which would you recommend?

Thanks-- JP
