It was worth the wait for an update RIOTURBAN - Great, precise work as always! What kind of wood are you using for this one?

Excellent stuff. I think it's time you got familiar with the Hook Blade which I use almost exclusively. It has greater leverage than any other blade but should only be used with bandaids readily available as it Will bite you if not careful.

Use the #9 Medium and if you call them you should be able to get 1 dozen for the same price as the gross pack rather than $1.22 for each blade. Then look at their Handles and get the #CHW-3LJ, it has the best blade holding jaws of all their others.

thanx cy, its birch.nice to carve,its quite soft
thank you benzart for sharing.i use similar knives for small pieces.have to check out these concave shaped knives you use!i guess they feel even sharper because of the
oblique shearing effect.

Hook blades are choice!

a few layers of wood stain later,it`s fresh so it looks lacquered,i`ll do that later.
