Cool group!  Whittlers are for some the holy grail of slipjoint collecting. For me as a maker I love the challenge of making one. Here is my rendition of a Case #83 pattern in my dyed and jigged bone.

JJ, The seahorse cleaned a few fish but I had around 30 to clean so I switched to a knife more suited for the job. The fish I cleaned with it came out just fine.

The secondaries are great for smaller items, but the wharncliffe is built to handle almost anything.  (Appearantly, not fish though.)

I take it, then, that it gets a big thumbs up?

Never thought about cleaning fish with one though, but I'll bet it'll do you a great job on the walking sticks.

If you get around to carving some canes, give me a holler...

I was asked to write a review for a seahorse whittler so I'll give it my best try. I have never owned a seahorse whittler or any wharncliffe blade in my life. I always bought blades relating to outdoor activities.

The case seahorse whittler that I purchased came with stag scales, not the quality of the 60s and 70s, but still very nice stag. The knife came with razor sharp blades, they're thin and adapted to precision cutting.

The knife arrived just in time for a planned camping and fishing trip with my two grandaughters, alot of my good friends and their children. So I figured I'd give this new knife a try on this trip.

On a camping trip like this, there is need for a small pocket knife; opening packages, food preparation, cutting fish lines and so forth. The knife passed all the tests and everyone that saw it fell in love with it.

It's only drawback was when it was time to clean fish. It's not very well suited for this task. I cleaned a few with it so it will get you out a bind if it's the only knife you have with you.

I make walking staffs for fun and as gifts for friends and family. I'm starting to make more and may start selling them and I thought it would be a good idea to carve something into them, like a face or different designs and patterns. It has worked great so far. It carves like a dream. I would encourage anyone wanting to try a new knife pattern to give this one a try. You will be very glad you did!

Well done.

Here's a picture of my new little friend. I'm going camping this weekend with my granddaughters and I'll be putting it to the test. I'll let you guys know how it fairs.

OK, but I have to wait for my grand daughter to get home to help me with it.

Well the Sea Horse Whittler has arrived. It's the neatest little thing. I can't believe that I never checked one out before now.
