All Al's fault lol, my modded whittling knife .
« on: September 21, 2017, 11:05:22 AM »
Well yesterday I got gifted a whittling book and shrade 108otw stockman from Trad , so although I like my little Imperial schrade for smaller carving jobs I wanted to make a more beefier knife ,my RR lockback hunter I built from there kit was just sitting in a draw so Hey presto my new whittling knife,I'm sure I'll make a few more changes as I use it  :D

Who me?  :angel:

 :D

Nice work, Paul  :tu: You might want to make it a slightly sharper point though. Slightly more Wharncliffe than Sheepsfoot if that makes sense  :think: Other than that, it should work really well. A good size handle for grip strength, and a stout blade too. I think they call them chip carving knives  :think: but not sure what the difference is supposed to be between whittling and chip carving :shrug:

Let us know how it works, and be sure to share pics of the projects mate  :cheers:

It is a mirror, but it shows an ideal reflection, not the real thing.  :oops:

Hooked, like everyone else. :D

Is it easier to use a straight or a curved blade? Something like the Eldris?

I used a Mora Classic and the Wenger Ranger. They work on long branches but not so much on flat surfaces. I have full sets of special blades but not much dexterity and experience.Wife is not happy with wood shavings on the floor and that's discouraging.

BTW,  I love your wizzard.

I'll probably use this knife and the Mora 2/0 and the congress coping blade on the next bit of whittling I do  :D the 2/0 is very comfy to use for carving and the congress coping blade is good for deep small cuts ,the lockback whittler I'm sure will evolve  ;)
