    Gerald reacted to John Morris for a gallery image, Chinaberry Spoon (Morakniv)   
    The knife is a hook knife, great for carving out scoops and the bowl of a spoon. I read much about the use of these knives, and how to carve the Swedish Slojd method, it takes some getting used too, but the methods are very efficient and accurate.
    This hook knife is made by Morakniv, a tradition in Sweden, and the cost of the knives are very affordable.
    Here is a link to a series of videos by Morakniv and legend Jogge Sundqvuist on use and maintenance.
    The whole series can be found here at Swedish Knife Grip Lessons with Jogge Sundqvuist

    Gerald reacted to John Morris for a gallery image, Plumb Right Handed Broad Hatchet   
    A couple weeks ago we did a tool inventory at my day job and we got rid of a few things, or gave them away, I salvaged this beautiful Plumb right handed hatchet, just begging for a nice restoration. She's an old hatchet used by our surveyors over the last 40 years, still has some survey orange paint on the handle. The handle is not conducive for a carving hatchet, I may make one and fit it to the head. But I really see a lot of potential in this single bevel right handed hatchet, I love it.

    IN this piece I was working to make the carving fit just inside an odd shaped burl.    Used aspire to copy the burl than composed the owl / moon / branches in Aspire inside the area.
