Ivy for whittling?

Started by John Bamford. Last reply by John Bamford Apr 14, 2018. 10 Replies

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

Those Helvie knives sure look nice.

One aspect that I find appropriate is the downward tilt to the blade.  One reason I favor the Seahorse Whittler is because of the downward tilt on the wharnie main blade...

Ron, it seems to hold an edge well. It was sharp when I got it so I left it as is and have not resharpened it yet. Its suposed to be a good laminated steel.

Jan, those Helvies look very nice and purposful.

The mora frost looks like it is comfy in hand.  I just looked at these and am wondering it that grip looks as well thought out

Does that knife hold a fairly decent edge, Michael?

Nice job on the horses, too! Now you need a corral to put them in.

I got this Mora Frost carving knife last november and here are a few scandanavian style Dala horses im carving with it. I really like this knife amd its fairly imexpensive, about $25 .

Sounds like a good class, DL.  Realistically, you'll only need minimal tools;

Jan mentioned the kevlar gloves, GOOD choice.

John mentioned a strope, for my knives I use old belt blanks.  I'm into saving cash also.

You'll only need one or two knives, for this, a basic carving (roughout) and a detail blade.  Starting out, I'd go with a good fixed blade carving knife, though if you prefer a folding knife, Flexcut makes the Whittling Jack, which has both blades.

John,

Great way to recycle and save more money for knives!!

DLKG,

Kevlar-type cut resistant glove would be the most important type of equipment for me LOL.  You might find this part of the group helpful

Make your own carving knife (fixed blade) less than one hour! Cheap...

I make my own strops Dead , the last and best so far I did in the last week or so . 

I use leather rescued from old leather furniture that gets dumped in skips .

Soaked the leather in PVA to make it a little harder before I glued it to a piece of oak that was sitting in the shed . The strop was then coated in some 0.5 micron diamond strop paste .
