Some years ago, around 20 at a guess, I carved a letter opener out of a piece of ivy. The blade was in the shape of a Javanese Kris, something like the one below in general shape.…Continue

TURNIP BEE Knife Tested

The best way to test a knife is to use it almost exclusively in a carving project to experience all the various slicing cuts it can make to shape the block of wood into the envisioned image of the carving project.  In this test a six-inch-tall woodworker is holding a saw in one hand and […]

I've a whopping 2 S&M .. my favorite being a humpback lockback whittler of their Premier series. I've a very nice leather purse for it. Still can't bring myself to carry or use it. Just .. one of those knives.

Congrats, JJ.

Boy, that is sweet, J.J.!

Those appear to be walnut scales topped-off with S&M's striking and unmistakeable Keystone shield...Beautiful, indeed! And a wharnie master, to boot! Yippy Skippy...Great score!

Congrats, my friend!

Picked up this beautiful Schatt & Morgan wharncliffe half whittler, at the Dalton show, this past weekend.

You are right JJ I collect a few burls that I find on trees, mostly Grey Alder around here. It isn't sensible because there tends to be so many faults inside them that Its no use planning on something just see what comes out ...if anything! 

I only really persevere with this knife cos I paid good money for it, if I lost it then it wouldn't be replaced.

Love the mushroom carving, John.

Sometimes it's the wood that determines the finished piece.

The only flexcut jack, that I own, is the whittling jack.  Bought it to review.

Comment by John Bamford on February 18, 2018 at 7:11

I have been meaning to buy an Oar whittler for quite some time now, I have had the Flexcut for some years and have never liked it.  As JJ say's they are ugly but to my mind, a far worse failing is that they are very uncomfortable in use. The other blades to the ones in use are always trying to make their way out of the frame and into my hand.

Having said I have been using it for a while now as I sometimes do a little whittling in my lunch break at work. I work on my own and inhabit an old van so no-one knows what I am up to.

No particular reason for whittling a couple of mushrooms with an oakleaf stuck to them as they emerge, just took my fancy. May get finished in another month or two of lunch breaks!

I feel the same way about certain models .. one manufacturer just excels. Others do a "good" job ..but.. one excels. I like lock-back whittlers ..but.. I've seen some ugly ones too.

It may be the "Knife Guy" in me, but they're downright ugly.

Comment by Jan Carter on February 17, 2018 at 20:36

JJ, 

I agree on the Flexcut, just ugly.  Hey I know where there is a 2 blade that has been used and could take a trip to SC and back !

Comment by J.J. Smith III on February 17, 2018 at 20:26

I'm sure it's not an unreasonable figure, Dale, but I'm just relaying information.

I'm not sure what the relationship was between Stadtlander and Queen.  I do know that the Oar Carver's filled a void between Carver's that liked to carve with a pocket knife as opposed to a regular carving knife.   Flexcut knives are an option, but I simply hate them.

It may be the "Knife Guy" in me, but they're downright ugly.

This one probably won't get much use, Ron.  I use one of the single lockers (because I have 2) and it's sweet.  If I ever get the opportunity to find another version II, I'll jump on it and give it a whirl.

Still, the seahorse is my go to knife, for carving.
