Sharpened again and had another go. I have a better tip on the knife now, and I need to watch I don't go too deep

Doesn't show at all in Tapatalk. Some can see it. Not sure why not everyone can.

Actually, I think I forgot tp add it to my shared album first, so that's probably why you couldn't see it

Hopefully this one shows up Stoneshank!

Using Doug Outside's video on carving a bear. I split two sides off the block I had with the main blade to give better dimensions. This is about an inch square, 25mm down from 35mm and 65mm tall.



I need to hone to a finer grit than the ceramic side of my DC4 sharpening stone before stropping to get rid of those scratches on the edge. They're a lot more obvious with that filter. I have some finer grits of wet and dry sand paper I can wrap around it.

Just pull the trigger on a Hiker to modify into a whittling knife. The Recruit is nice, I just want to see if the 91mm will fit better into my XL size 10 hands

Wow, that bear and and the wood spirits looks amazing, I can't do those geometric ones that nice. I can recommend the 100 mm gardener ones, they are easy to reshape and they quite sure in hand. They are chisel ground though, both for goods and worse.

It's easy to get laser sharp and easy in general to hand sharpen in a pocket dc4 etc. Bad side is that it's a bit tricky to get full control at start - it's like playing football with a limp ish, but it is easy to get over and eventually it's to your advantage

 :cheers: It is a work in progress, I need to watch the video again. I'll see how I go with the Hiker before trying a Gardener, but will keep it in mind. The edge is still nice and sharp, just need to strop it to bring it back. The scratches are more form than function, really.
I think it's be a fraction easier on something a tad wider so I don't need to angle the knife 45 degrees to engage the whole edge

Been totally out of inspiration as of late but I'll get back on the horse soon enough. So enjoyable to see others work here. Looks great!

Mucking around on the weekend, still had some apple tree off cuts. Used the Bahco Carpenters Knife (Mora Companion) to make the bigger one, Cadet to make the smaller one



Tidied up with the Recruit and used an orange highlighter, red and black permanent markers to give the smaller one a bit of colour



My Hiker arrived earlier in the week  :mail: so have ground off the lanyard ring and modified the small blade. Tip - if using a grinder (bench or hand held) to grind off the lanyard ring, it would pay to wrap something like masking tape around everything you don't want ground bits of metal in. I made things a bit crunchy afterwards  :facepalm:  :oops:  :whistle:

I can tell the difference, the Hiker fills the hand a bit better than the Recruit. The Recruit feels like a small detail knife in comparison

Thanks Rapidray. That orange is pretty bright. I'm sure there's a way to tone it down with some antiquing style paint or boot polish or something

I think I've done enough with this little bear. I could give him some v-cuts for fur, but the wood grain kind of looks like fur anyway. I'm pretty happy as a first attempt
