Are the hook knifes you posted good ones or just inexpensive ones?...



I thought the Warren Cutlery Hook Knives were quite good - I use mine all the time. The blades are cheap enough that I usualy just sharpen them a couple of times, then toss 'em and replace them with new ones. I'd suggest buy a set or two of new blades at the same time you buy the set Benz suggests.

I "think" these are the right blades (Ben?):

at
www.warrencutlery.com Online Store:

Part 8-B - Detail Carving Blade (sold in packages of 3)
Blade specifications: 5/16" wide x 2 1/4" long, semi straight shape( 2" radius). .030 thick. Hollow ground on inside curve to a Razor-edge.High carbon Tool steel- hardened and double tempered to Rockwell 60 C scale. Excellent detail blade easy to resharpen with a diamond.
Price: $3.28

I also suggest having Benz set up the 1/2 carves like he did for us at CoonTiki - that was very helpful (plus you get to take an original Benzart home, albeit only 1/2 of one!).

Have a blast! I know you will!

What you'll get: Two days of instruction, lunch, snacks, beverages & a commemorative t-shirt. You will also be provided a two foot log for your carving pleasure, but you will need to bring your own chisels (BYOC) and a carving stand if you have one.

The event will be limited to 25 carvers. First come, first served. Payment will be required in advance. No reservations will be held without payment. You can pay by check, money order or PayPal. If paying by PayPal, a $4 fee will be added to offset PayPal fees. We'll send you an invoice. If you'd like to mail in your payment, please PM me for mailing address.

San Diego has many lodging options available depending upon your budget. We'd be happy to suggest a few. (Lodging & travel are not included)

We are really looking forward to putting this event together. This may be your one chance to learn from the pro's and have all three together at once.

If you have any further questions, please post here or drop us a PM.
Hope to see you all there.
Moki"

Hey Nicktiki,

If GROG do diaper duty, you'll have to remind GROG which end is up; it's been a long time since GROG changed diapers. Seems to GROG if you put diapers on the topside, that'll keep the kid quieter, so that you don't have to listen to all that crying that babies are wont to do.

Moki, gotta send you check. GROG want to carve.

Now GROG just need to find some chisels.

We're starting to fill up fast!!

If you're on the fence about coming for this, you better make a decision quick, before it's full.

It's going to be a great weekend!!

The correct hook blades to get from Warren Cutlery are the #10 as the other hooks are quite different. They work but not as well.

Ah! Just as I suspected! I'll be in Hawaii during that time, so everyone will have to have fun without me. Shouldn't be too hard I expect. Sorry I'm going to miss out! Have fun guys!

Sorry you won't be with us, but if I had the choice, I think The Islands would win out over carving any day.
I received all the wood for the lessons today. How many of you coming are "Lefties" because for you guyz I will carve the side you would not normally carve the best , the right side. Please let me know which side you want carved. Thanks. I will carve 1 per person, so I need to know who all is coming.
THANKS,Benzart
